Every child likes simple percussion instruments! We made a whole basket of it, some homemade, some bought. These drums are a nice extension for the collection and quite quickly made. And also made from recycled metal cans, in the spirit of badala.
- empty, washed-out cans in different sizes (remove the labels)
- rubber wrestling
- Ice sticks or also old pencils
It's that simple:
Cut off the long ends of the balloons ...
by using the Öﬀnung of the can and with a rubber ring ﬁxieren.
That's it, very fast done, but a lot of fun for the next time!
Please be careful if you make the drums with small children, the edges of the cans can be sharp.
Have fun drumming!

Every child loves to explore percussion instruments and this is a wonderful addition to the collection. You can make the drums in various diﬀerent sizes for added fun. And the lovely thing is they are made in no time at all and are made from recycled food tins.
- Empty, clean metal food tins, (label removed)
- Elastic bands
- Lollipop sticks or old pencils
Cut the long ends oﬀ the balloon and stretch it over the opening of the tin.
Then secure it with an elastic band...and you're done!
Please note the edges of the tins may be sharp, so be careful when letting small children help with this activity.
