• DIY Toy Leather Drum

    leatherdrum3

    This toy leather drum is a really easy and cute craft to make as a gift for a young child. Mini versions would also be cute as favors for a child’s music party.
    You could experiment with drum sticks too. I was thinking felted pom poms attached to chopsticks? Could be a cute addition!

      What a cute, easy craft! My son was just asking for a drum the other day and all we had were a pair of bongos we bought in the Caribbean before we had kids. This drum would be better for him:)
