You can make a mighty good home-made drum out of a shoe
box or a round hat box. Try one of these out and you will be
pleased with the results.

Take a strong cardboard box (such as a shoe or hat box) and
punch two holes in its cover, one at each side. Turn the box
upside down and make two holes through its bottom, directly
under the holes you punched in the cover.

Thread a piece of strong string through the holes as shown
in the drawing. Draw the box and the cover together and tie
large knots in the string at X and X, to hold the cover tightly
against the box. Then tie the ends of the string together to form
a loop to go around your neck.

For drumsticks you can use sticks of wood, tablespoons or
wooden clothespins.
