Guitar With Stars

The Triple Drum is a percussion instrument. A drum produces sound when the top of itis struck. I used three cans to make my triple drum. One is a metal can. Two of the cans are coated cardboard. All three cans have plastic caps.

The three cans are different sizes and make different sounds. The volume and tone change when I hit the drum hard or soft.

To decorate the Triple Drum I wrapped each can with construction paper and glued it together. I added colored squares to one drum, glitter to another and painted a flag on the other.
