Upcycle your soup and vegetable cans into tin can drums with this super fun art activity!
We’ve been on a tin can binge, so Henry and I had to make these drums from tin cans, too!
DIY Upcycled Tin Can Drums
Play with balloons with this fun balloon science activity!
Since Father’s Day is this coming Sunday, and his Dad used to be a drummer, I thought these would make a perfect gift from Henry!
I may fill the tin can drums up with some goodies before Sunday, too! They make a great gift box.
As always, working beside Henry usually proves to be more productive than just watching and telling him what to do.
Henry started painting with green paint. He covered the entire can with paint, inside and out!
He added a splash of orange and blue to his tin can for a little color. He only painted the one can, but I was impressed with the amount of time he spent to cover it completely.
Once the paint dried, I cut off the end of a balloon and slipped it over the top of the tin can drum.
If there ends up with a little bubble in the middle of the balloon, take it off and snip a little more off the end and try again.
I added a second layer of balloons to two of the tin can drums and snipped holes in it like Quirky Momma did with her tin can drum activity.
I also had added rice, pasta, and some rocks to each of the tin can drums to make shakers! Henry shook them to hear their different noises.
He also drummed them loudly, having lots of fun!
Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
