Expressive Arts and Design

Drummers Drumming

  • Using pots, pans and baking trays from the kitchen lay out your own ‘drum kit’. Allow your child to explore by banging and tapping the pans to see the different sounds they make.
  • Extend this activity by tapping out a rhythm and asking your child to listen to it then repeat it. You could make this more difficult by adding in a blindfold so they have to rely on the sound to identify which pot or pan they need to hit to copy.
