Cottage Cheese Drumming?

I am using "bucket drums" with young students more every year because they love them so much. They are really cottage cheese containers from a restaurant!   Today we sang, "Hickey Tickety Bumblee Bee" and we sang, "Can you say your name for me? instead of SING.  They said their name as best they could while they drummed the rhythm of their name. We all echoed.  It gives me a good idea as to where we are starting with rhythm and coordination.


  1. I love this idea! Do you have them use their hands to drum, or do they have mallets?
