Flower Pots and Tin Cans

Tin Cans and Flower Pots make a great percussion instrument! Take any empty tin cans (soup, etc), make sure the sharp edges are crimped with plyers or filed down. Set them down and use wooden dowels or spoons to play them.
Clay Flower Pots make excellent sounding bell drums. Strike the pots near the rim with chopsticks or other light beater. The playing motion should be sideways against the sides of the pots near the rim. (advice from Bart Hopkin)
