the day after i wrote the post about buddy's creativity, he constructed an entire drum set, including the high hat cymbals from paper. it was all his idea - following a yo gabba gabba episode about instruments - and he enlisted jo jo (eva's husband who is staying with us) to help.
jo jo has been staying with us for close to a month. he's here trying to get employment as a driver, but has to go through a course to get his license. while he waits, he helps eva. and us. the kids love having him around to play with. and eva runs a tight ship, getting him whipped into shape to help her around the house. he's quickly become buddy's sidekick in all things crafty.
have a look.
the chopstick drumsticks work quite well. now, just because they're made from paper doesn't mean they are any less booming. because they're made from paper, however, they will only last a few days. and so, we're dealing with the drumming. just after their drum sets were finished, they composed their first duet. a lullaby. on the drums. for cally.
it was lovely. and booming. not your typical lullaby. but, cally did sleep through it.
