Make A Colorful Drum!

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.

Autumn Market Party Hop

Things actually started cooling off a bit around here. It was a welcome change just in time for my sister’s wedding last Friday. It’s still warm, but it’s definitely more comfortable to be outside and a clear signal that Fall is on it’s way — yay! We love Fall, so we were pretty excited when Sara over at Confetti Sunshine asked us to participate in another Party Hop with an Autumn Market theme.
