A Noisy DIY Balloon Drum for Kids with a Balloon Skin

Balloon drum is a fun project I do with my son. It is really easy and a great way to keep a toddler busy for few minutes. I usually use burst balloons to create drums, but a new balloons are good too. If the burst balloon is suitable and large enough to stretch over a tin or cup, then I use those to create a drum for him.

For the balloon drums, I always use plastic cups, so I don’t have to worry about sharp edges of the tins. But, I guess it gives good sound with an empty tin than with a plastic cup.

Here is what we did to create this balloon drum.

Things that you will need:

A balloon

Empty can or a plastic cup

Elastic band/rubber band

Sticks (pencils are fine too)

How to make a balloon drum?

Making a balloon drum is really easy and it is a no brain task.

Simply cut the end of the balloon. Stretch the balloon over the tin or cup.

Use the elastic band to secure the balloon over the cup.

A balloon drum is done. Give it to your kid with a pair of sticks.

This is great as an earth day activity too as this project involve a burst balloon skin and an empty tin.

I use to do this! We would sing outside houses during Christmas and the house owners would give us money in return. Since we cant afford any instruments we would do this for a pop up drum that we can use right up! #letkidsbekids
