Kids toys can be expensive, so these DIY drums are a cheap and effective way to save money while having fun.
Start the project off with a simple can with both ends cut off as the base and secure construction paper to the sides with school glue. Next, paint and design the sides to your hearts content with paint, crayons or stick-on characters. Obtain a sheet of imitation leather from a craft store and cut a circle just bigger than the top of the can. Punch holes along the side and weave a piece of faux leather string through each one before securing it over the opening of the can.
While the finished product is fun to play with, create the drum with your child to fill an afternoon; you’ll find making one is a game all its own.
