When you have a teensy girl who is learning how to drum, you need to find a teensy drum which is pretty impossible. So, what is a parent to do….make one.
Step 1: Purchase a Tom drum and dress it up with black ribbon and glue gun so it looks less toy and more drum.
Step 2: Make hubby design and build a holder for said drum. This will allow teensy drummer to walk and drum when she reaches the level of being able to co-ordinate these two activities.
Step3: Paint holder to make it look professional. Add three dog collars (’cause they are just the right size) and two wrist sweatbands for shoulder straps (sweatbands to stop the bands from rubbing on little shoulders) and waist belt.
Step4: Attach to child and viola! A teensy tenor drum. Now we are just waiting to add the kilt and grandma’s cream socks and we will be ready to play with the band.
