Twelve Drummers Drumming Craft

Twelve Drummers Drumming Craft

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping, ten lords a-leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids a-milking, seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying, five gold rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree. For the twelfth day of Christmas this year, my daughter and I made twelve paper drummers drumming.
