Making a Homemade Tambourine
Jaime and her kiddos have been having so much fun making homemade instruments! Today, we added homemade TAMBOURINES to the lineup of instruments we have made while going live on facebook. For this craft, you will need a decent amount of hot glue, so be prepared for that. The kids part in this craft is making the design on the fabric. We used a pair of my sons old ripped up khaki pants for this craft. I always feel good when I can upcycle a little! We don’t have fabric in our house, so this worked perfect. It is nice and thick too, allowing for a good tambourine head. The kids decorated the fabric circles (pre-cut a little in a circle a little larger than the embroidery hoop) and decorated it with markers. You could use puffy paint, or skip that entirely and use pre-designed fabric as well.
