I had some pretty big plans for the summer – ok, well not big plans..but relaxing plans. We finally got an above ground pool that I hoped to spend many, many hours soaking in the rays, I had started working on putting a patio in the backyard, as well as an awesome firepit …but this summer for us has been full of rain. Rain and chilly weather making our pool too cold to swim in, and working in the yard, well impossible. So of course the kids have been completely BORED out of their minds, like ‘I cant watch another movie or play another video game bored’. My kids love to sing and dance, so we decided to make some instruments and start a band!


We used some Pringles cans to make our drums. I had plenty in the pantry 1. because my family loves Pringles and 2. because they have an awesome sweepstakes going on (more about that below). We decided to decorate them using construction paper and Wasabi tape. I poked a hole in the side of the container, and put a paperclip through it to hold the straps for the drums.


The kids had a blast putting on a show (my girls were too shy to get in the picture) but they sang, danced, played, and laughed! It was so nice to enjoy some fun, and a little bit of exercise, even on a rainy day! Be sure to check out for inspiration on how to make your own Pringles® can instrument.
