We’ve been having a lot of fun with these tin can drums. We created this project a few months ago since it was for the November issue of Raising Arizona Kids magazine. Not sure how many of you realize, but deadlines for print magazines are a couple months ahead of real time, so it’s actually pretty amazing that these drums we made during the summer are still being played with in our home.
I guess we should have known we’d made a hit when the kids wouldn’t even leave them alone long enough for photographs. We honestly were not planning to shoot this with the kids, but they kept sneaking into the photos since they couldn’t resist the urge to beat on these drums. So finally I just decided to snap a few with them in it too.
We considered making mallets, but the kids were totally satisfied just using their hands. Plus a hand drum is much quieter, a fact we’re sure moms everywhere can appreciate. Head over to RaisingArizonaKids.com for the full instructions.
