Crafts for Children -- Drums and Rattles

Monday, April 14, 2008
I don't know about your children but my children are big fans of music, especially drumming and chanting. In fact the oldest one has a drum of her very own that I bought her. But for those that don't want, or don't have the money to invest in buying a premade drum, you can always make your own.
They won't be the best sounding drums but your kids will love you for it, guaranteed.

Things You Will Need

Empty Coffee Cans
Construction Paper
Dry Beans or Rice

  1. Make sure the coffee cans are clean
  2. Measure the construction paper to fit around the cans
  3. Decorate the paper
  4. Glue the paper around the cans
