I made a drum/maraca/scratcher. The drum sound is me hitting the top of the drum. The maraca sound is me shaking it and the dry noodles and pennies inside hitting the sides of the cans. The sound it makes like a scratcher is made by a pencil being stroked against the ridged side of the can.

I made Drumacca by taping the cans together and then I put pennies and dry noodles inside. The sides of the cans were already ridged so I didn't have to do anything to that. I stuck feathers on the edges of one can and stuck feathers in between the two cans.
