Dragon Drums
by Mary

My instrument’s name is Dragon Drums.  I made it out of plastic tubes and packaging tape.  I got the idea from a paper dragon I saw at Nobbies. 

It is a percussion instrument.  It sounds like a hollow pipe.  I used plastic PVC pipe.  My mom cut the pipe for me, and then she helped me put packaging tape around the pipes.  The pipe was very hard to cut.  It was smooth and sticky.  I made the colors from thin tissue paper and glued them on with white paste. 

You play the instrument by patting on it with your hands.  You can hit the small one to make high tones and the big one to make low tones.
