Toddler Drum Set

Toddlers love to make noise, and that’s why a toddler drum set may be very high on your toddler’s list of personal desires. To be able to bang away for ever, making a racket that will drive everyone in the house insane: that is one definition of toddler bliss. And if you are gifted either with high noise tolerance or sound proof playroom isolated from the rest of the house, there’s no reason not to give your toddler his or her dearest wish. 

Making a Simple Drum Set at Home

You can make a simple toddler drum at home with very little outlay. All you need is one of those large coffee tins that coffee maker coffee come in; the kind with the plastic top, or any similar tin; a ribbon, sticks, and some decorating supplies. Punch holes in the sides of your tin, near the upper edge, thread a shoelace or ribbon through it, and you’ve got a strap to go around your child’s neck. Put the lid on, then decorate the sides with construction paper, paper cutouts, and glitter. Buy two wooden dowels at the craft store, or find two appropriate sized sticks outside and use a kitchen knife to peel off the bark and smooth off any rough spots. Then give your child the beautiful drum, and let him or her walk around the house pounding.

Does the coffee can drum not quite cut it with your toddler? Maybe you’d like him to have something a little bit spiffier, with a bit more variety in noise making potential; a drum set he can sit down to and really make music.  Decide first: is electronic sound your thing, or would you rather your toddler had something made out of natural woods to play and experiment with?
