Make your own mini bongo drums

Today at PPP we made all sorts of African crafts as part of a day of celebration of our church connection with the Jubilee centre in Zambia.

The most popular craft by far was the making of mini bongo drums; here are the four easy steps.

1. Get together one plastic cup, some colourful paper for decoration, greaseproof paper and an elastic band.
2. Decorate the plastic cup - we filled ours with old strips of crepe paper
3. Cut a piece of greaseproof paper a bit larger than the top of the cup and lay on top
4. Hold the paper greaseproof in place with any elastic band

There you go; you're now ready to play African rhythms on you're own mini I bongo drum.
