Make Drums for Kids

Lydia Grace has been going to Kindermusik on Mondays.  I think she loves it more than any other activity we have done together.  We have a CD filled with the songs from the Kindermusik classes that we play at home.  Epo I Tai Tai E is a favorite from the CD.  When this song plays at Kindermusik, the children get to bang on drums that the instructor supplies.  When this song plays at home, Lydia Grace looks at me expectantly as if she is waiting for me to give her some drums to play.  Enough was enough...I decided to make some.  Decorative paper was cut and used to cover old formula containers that I had stored away for just such a project.  I used Mod Podge to adhere and seal the paper onto the containers.
   Now Epo I Tai Tai E gets the drumming accompaniment that it deserves at both Kindermusik and at home.

  2. I reuse my formula cans for gift packaging. I use scrapbook paper to wrap around the can and spray paint the lid to match. Add a cute bow and you're done! Super cute!!
