Rubber Ball Drum Sticks

Drum Stick (5)

We’ve been playing rock band a whole lot lately and needed drumsticks to go with our microphone!

This craft is perfect if you have a toddler who loves to use drum sticks on anything and everything, especially walls and furniture. The bouncy rubber balls are much kinder on a surface than wooden sticks!

To fashion them, poke a hole into two rubber balls – definitely a grown-up step. I saw this done on another blog where the parent used a drill, but I was able to poke into our rubber balls with just a little force and a screwdriver.

Insert two unsharpened pencils into the holes. To decorate, we first tried wrapping in string, which Travis had a surprising knack for.

But for more rock star flair, we abandoned the string in favor of shiny washi tape.

Travis loved the way the sticks gave a bounce with each tap!
