A big thank you to Ms. Marrisa for reading "Pokko And The Drum" by Matthew Forsythe. Do you think Pokko's parents made a mistake in giving her a dum? Would you have let the wolf stay in the band?
I absolutely loved Matthew Forsythe's illustrations and his storytelling. The expressions Pokko and her father make genuinly make me laugh out loud while reading.
So I hope your parents don't think I am making a mistake when I say... lets make a drum!
Assorted Empty Containers (plastic and cardboard work best)
Plastic Cling Wrap
I say "Possible Supplies" because there is no wrong or right way to go about making your drum. There are various materials and supplies that can be used, and are used all around the room. From plastic buckets, to wood, and oatmeal containers. I encourage you all to experiment and see what makes the best sound to you and have fun making your own drum!
