Children love playing drums in my classroom. Last year I wanted to have a drum for every child. I found the best base for the drums at the craft store—colorful, wacky plastic cups. Super cheap! Super easy!
Here’s how I made the drums.
A bag of 6 or 12 inch balloons (depending on the size of the opening of your cup)
A base (colorful summer plastic cups from the craft store)
Step one: Cut the bottom off the balloon.
Step two: Stretch the balloon tight over the top of the drinking cup. Tape down with duct tape. I love this cup as it is so tall. What a perfect drum!
Step three: Tape several times to securely attach the balloon.
That is it! Your drum is ready to go! And it has a great sound!
