For PE, create a game with the drum. Stand back from the drum and take it in turns to run in and play on 'your' beat. Always remember to leave the beater on the drum for the next person to use. What about making relay teams? Pass the beater like a relay baton, and let each member of the team take it in turns to race to the drum, place a beat or rhythm and race back ,with the beater, to the next person.
