Activity name:
Wave Drum

Materials needed:
Clean aluminum pie plate (one for each child)
Small beads
Construction paper
Masking or similar tape
Crayons, markers, and/or stickers
Scissors

Preparation:
Turn the pie plate over and place onto the construction paper.  Trace the pie plate.  Cut out the circle.  You'll need one for each child

Carrying out the activity:
Have the children decorate their circle.  When done, place about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup of beads into the pie plate.  Cover with the construction paper circle and tape all the way around making sure there are no holes or gaps.  To use the drum, slowly tilt the drum from side to side and up and down.  It will make a sound similar to the ocean.
