Activity – Make & Do
To make a Drum / Shaker –
You'll need a tin can e.g. Coffee, formula, baked beans, sweetcorn (no jagged edges) and you’ll also need rice, a balloon and a scissors.
Start by putting some rice into the clean can. You can use other things like beads, pasta, lentils or dried chickpeas in your drum to make different sounds.
Cut the end off the balloon (the end you blow in) and stretch the other bit of the balloon tightly over the open end of the tin can. Find something to make drumsticks out of e.g. pencils or chopsticks. Now shake and bang to your beat!
Another thing you could do is rub the drumstick up and down the bumpy ridges of the can. It should make a funny noise.
