A couple times I have had Spencer sit on my lap and listen to me play drums. He has even successfully hit the drum a couple times with the stick. Since he seemed to like the drums, but be a bit too small for them still, I decided to try the bongos with him. We can sit on the floor together and both play at the same time. He hasn’t figured out how to him them very well yet, but he likes to watch and listen to me play, and he can use the bongos to support himself a bit so that he is getting better at sitting up by himself.
