Cash LOVES to bang on things, watch people clap, and listen to loud noises. So when he started banging his hand all over his formula can the other day, I got a great idea! Why not make it look like a cool drum? I mean sure I could just save the formula can, it’ll make the same noise, but I don’t want some plain empty formula can rolling around my house making me look all hoarder-ish. So I got out some supplies, and made it look like a drum in less than 10 min!!
If you want to add fancy stuff at the end, that’s where the glue-gun and gluesticks come in, but I actually liked the way mine turned out without excess so I just used:
An Old Formula Can (you can use ANY spherical can for this though, like old ones from coffee, oats, etc)
Mod Podge Craft Paper
Black Chalkboard paint (side note: I’ll be getting some Calamity Jane’s ChalkStyle soon for an EXTRA fun upcoming craft…stay tuned)
Make sure you clean/wipe out your can, don’t want ants to be attracted to something the baby’s playing with! This was wayyy too easy. For starters I painted about 3 coats of chalkboard paint on the can (its a quick drying paint so this didn’t take long).
For the lid, I simply covered it in glue, then neatly applied my Mod-Podge Craft paper, I thought the musical notes would be perfect for this craft!
Finally just grab some chalk, get creative and let your baby play!!!!
