We love music in our house, and recycling is a big part of our lives. I am so excited about this craft that combines both in a fun way that the kids love. Use re-purposed coffee cans to create awesome, brightly-colored instruments your kids will have a great time with. Personalize them for an extra-special touch and drum away!
What you will need:
Empty coffee cans
Electrical tape in bright colors (we love these awesome neons by Kid Made Modern)
12″ wooden craft dowels
Make sure your coffee cans are clean and dry.
Wrap your can in electrical tape, alternating colors to form stripes. The bottom of the can will be the open end (remember to remove the lid!)
To personalize, use scissors to cut out tape letters to form your child’s name or initials.
Wrap the ends of each dowel in tape (two per set) to create your drumsticks.
Now you’re ready to play!
