African Drum Circle Crafts for Kids

African Drum Circle Crafts for Kids

About a month ago the music department asked the art department to create African inspired art for our fifth graders to wear during their Drumming Up World Music program, which was today (a great program, by the way). Most of these art lessons were taken out of the text book, others from the vast array of African crafts that can be found online. With the few days we had to see each fifth grade class, approximately 240 projects were made using 6 project ideas. The range of skills can be adapted by most fifth graders, with only a few melt downs. As long as the drums next door kept beating, their imaginations kept flowing.
