Make a Drum, Make Some Music

Grab an empty oatmeal container, some tape, a shallow dish, white glue, a paintbrush, and cut-out squares of colored tissue paper. Tape the container’s cover securely down. Pour some glue in the dish. Using the brush, spread the glue all over the outside of the container. Then, stick the colored paper all around the drum. Let dry and have your baby pound away!
