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.
