A fun craft for Imbolc

Typically, a fun craft for Imbolc entails a Brigid Cross or Corn Dolly. Here’s a different fun to make project for you and your kids. Imbolc is a holiday when the days can be seen as noticeably longer since the Winter Solstice when the night was the longest of the year. Mark the returning strength of the sun with a Fire Dream Drum. Alternately, you could draw a Brigid’s Cross or a seedling on the drum faces instead.

In any case, this happy noise maker is a fun craft for Imbolc celebrations.

craft for ImbolcFire Dream Drums (ages 9-12)

You will need:

Strong paper dessert-sized plates        White glue

Colored markers, paint, crayons          Sturdy yarn

1-hole hole-punch                                   6mm plastic beads

Long wooden dowels                              Scissors

How to make Fire Dream Drums:

Use the markers, paint or crayons to color flame-like patterns on the bottom side of two dessert plates. With the plates held together, rims touching, and the colored sides facing out, use the 1-hole hole-punch to make eight holes at equal spaces around the lips of the plates. Take a wooden dowel and carefully slide it in between the plates. Make sure the punched holes remain lined up. Glue the top and bottom of the dowel where it meets the edges of the plates. Allow the glue to dry.

Cut eight ten-inch (25 cm) pieces of yarn, one for each hole. Take a piece of yarn and thread it through each pair of matching holes. Make a knot close to the hole in the plates, leaving the remaining ends of the yarn free. Thread the yarn through a few beads and tie the ends together with a double knot. Make sure the knot is secure. We don’t want beads flying across the room when we use the drums!

When all the beads are tied on tightly, the drums are ready to use. To use them, hold the dowel between fingers or palms and spin the dowel back and forth so the beads hit the plates to make a steady drum beat.
