Step 1: Preparation and Testing

Take clean empty containers (as many as you want to build drums with)
- they can be plastic yogurt containers
- styrofoam glasses
- plastic bottles with with mouths
Make sure these are all hard enough that they will not bend when a ballon is stretched over the tops

Then take a large balloon and cut 1/3rd off to see if it can be fully stretched on one of the containers - if there is saag then you will need smaller size balloons. Once stretched hold the ballon in place with rubber bands.

Step 2: Drum Sticks

Take two pencils and cover them with multiple balloons and tie them down with rubber bands.

Step 3: Decorate Drums

Decorate the drums the way you like. This one is covered with two colour paper tapes - yellow and green.

Step 4: Practice and Play

Once you have multiple sizes put the drums in sequence big to small and play like a drum set.
