Dramaca

How my instrument was made:

I took two cans and taped them together. Then I decorated them both with paper. I used the popcorn kernels inside the cans to make the instrument sound better.

How my instrument makes sound:

To make sound you hit my instrument with chop sticks on the sides of both cans.

 

 

Swingdum

How my instrument was made:

I used a coffee can, some white paint, and some water.

How my instrument makes sound:

You turn the can upside down so the water is on top of the cover and hit it with a stick. Then you turn it right side up so the water is on the bottom of the can and hit the bottom.
