A noisy, musical instrument

tin drum

You will need:

  • An empty tin
  • Holographic sticky-backed plastic or paper, and clear sticky-backed plastic
  • Stickers or washable colouring pens, pencils or crayons to decorate
  • Sticky tape
  • Old drumsticks, chopsticks or pencils. Top tip – drumstick tips do break so you may find a friendly drummer can supply you with old ones
  • Earplugs

How to make:

1. Seal the tin with sticky tape.

2. Either decorate it with holographic sticky-backed plastic and allow the children to add stickers or get the children to colour in and decorate some paper and stick it to the drum with clear sticky-backed plastic.

3. Provide sticks to bang it with and insert earplugs accordingly.
