Hold onto those oatmeal canisters! Add some paint and your child's decorative flair, and you've got a set of bongo drums!
Dora Mermaid, Sun., 6/23 @ 7PM ET on Nick Jr.
Have your child paint the oatmeal boxes and then allow them to dry. Replace the tops on the boxes and turn the containers upside down.
Place a wooden bead about a third of the way down the container and glue it in place. Allow it to dry. Place another bead about two-thirds of the way down the container, and glue it in place also. Once the beads are dry and secure, glue them to the remaining oatmeal container. Parents: using a glue gun makes this step much easier.
Have your child help decorate the drums with different shapes and colors of foam.
Glue one piece of ribbon to the outside of one oatmeal container. Make sure the ribbon is long enough to go over your child's neck and shoulders. Then attach the other end of the ribbon to the opposite container.
