Drums from Empty Can

After seeing my daughter enjoy the Dubai Drums in her nursery, I thought making her own drum during 'Letter of the Week - d' would be perfect for her!

Things required for 'Drums from Empty Can' craft are: Empty can (we used the oats one), golden paper (any other kind of your choice will also do), some more pattern papers for decorating the drum, 2 lolipop sticks, glue, brush, scissors and a plate.

Cut the golden paper in the can size.

Then with the help of the brush apply glue on the can and stick the paper on it.

Finally added some polka dot papers to decorate the drum.

Though my daughter wasn't very keen on helping in making the drum, she was elated once it was ready. She made her own orchestra with the plate and her tambourine.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
