Banging our drum!!

🥁…. Well actually it’s a light table, but it can be turned on to ‘drum mode’ and becomes a HUGE fabulous flashing drum!! Cheeky Monkeys are still loving hitting and banging everything they can to make as much noise as possible! They have been observed turning pretty much every resource within their room into a ‘drum’… pans in the role play kitchen… not currently for cooking pasta, upend them and voila it’s a drum!! The gigantic slide… find a wooden block and bang, bang, bang on it… it’s a gigantic drum, pens in the mark-making area, not for drawing, but for drumming on the table top or floor instead… So after feeding their passions by providing building tools and resources and also multiple wooden blocks with pegs to hammer down with wooden hammers they decided to create the ultimate flashy drum!!With the flick of a switch ‘drum mode’ was enabled and the ultimate object for exploring cause and effect created! Our children soon discovered that if they hit it with their hands/found objects from around the room it flashed! They could then create their own tunes and light patterns… AMAZING 👋🏿👋👋🏻👋🏾🔨🔨🔨🔴🔵🟣🟢🟡🟠🟠🔴🟣🟡🟢🔨🔨🔨👋👋🏾👋🏿👋🏻
