Quiet Drums (Really!)

Kids love banging on drums, but not all instruments need to be the kind that do a number on everyone’s hearing! Help your child to make these “quiet drums” for a low-key concert. She can start by decorating the back of a paper or plastic plate with paint, paper, stickers, and/or markers. When your child is satisfied with her drum plate, hand her some plastic drinking straws to use as drumsticks and let her play away.
