My oldest son L often asks me to bring out all of our pots and pans to make the same "drum" circle as pictured above. My youngest, now 18 months, has witnessed his brother banging on the "drums" with curiosity, but has always kept his distance because of how loud L is when he does it. After one of L's drum sessions, I left the pots, pans, and spoons (drumsticks) in the middle of the floor to see if B would try it for himself. He eventually made his way over and started banging on the pans with his hands. I watched for a while and then set him in the middle of the circle with the spoon. He picked it up and started "drumming" all by himself! With every tap he looked up at me proudly and I clapped and cheered for every clang and bang!
His first jam session!
