Directions

  1. Step 1

    Decide with your child whether to make a small drum or large drum, and then print out the drum printables.

  2. Step 2

    Parents can help their child cut out the drum printable and glue it to the oatmeal canister. Once the printable has been glued on, run your hand up and down the canister to smooth out any bumps.

  3. Step 3

    Have your child cut out and place Diego's African Safari Stickers around the canister to personalize their drum.

  4. Step 4

    Help your child cut out pieces of string and glue them over the white dashes on the drum template.

  5. Step 5

    Cut a piece of brown ribbon long enough to go over your child's shoulder. Parents can staple one end of the ribbon to the top of the canister and one end to the bottom. After stapling, glue a piece of ribbon over the staples to prevent them from scratching.
