Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Begin by gathering different sizes of cans and containers. Next, grab some duct tape sheets and scissors and start cutting circles.

  • Step 2

    Don't worry if your circles are not perfectly round. Just eyeball it! Next, peel off the duct tape sheet from the backing. I helped my daughter here by holding down the backing for her. :)

  • Step 3

    Now, place the duct tape sheet circle over the opening of the container and press down. Make sure to stick down the edges too!

    My daughter played her drums with both her hands bongo-style and also with her plastic drumsticks. Feel the beat and have fun!
