How to Make Musical Instruments for Kids : How to Make a Tom Tom Drum Using a Container & Balloo
English English Hello I'm Annie Brunson on behalf of ExpertVillage. We are learning about making musical instruments using everyday household items.Today we are going to make a tom tom. The best thing to do is to find a oatmeal containeror any kind of container will work. This is a toilet roll holder from a office. This wouldalso work but we are going to use a oatmeal container. The first thing you are going todo is actually cover it so you could decorate it. I have already put one sheet on here sothe next thing that you do is actually cover it on the other side. So now it is covered.If you want to you could go ahead and decorate it at this time. Putting some strips or whateveryou want to do on the drum. Of course it could take a longer to do some pretty patterns thenwhat I have done. The next thing that you are going to do is punch out the bottom ofthe container. So now we could look straight through. We now have a cylinder and a littlebit of oatmeal. So that is what we do next. The next thing we do is take a balloon andyou are going to cut off the narrow part of the balloon. After you have stretch it oversomeone else needs to put a elastic band over the top. That is one end now repeat with theother end. Then you could get a pencil with a eraserat the end of it and you got a tom tom. You could make smaller ones any kind of sizesyou want as long as the balloon could stretch over it. This is a smaller one.
