What is more joyful than watching a toddler or preschooler rock out with no encouragement, using all their body and soul? Music and rhythm is a natural and important boost to a child's creativity. Cultivating a love of sound, art and rhythm help develop cross-brain neurology, leading to balanced child learning.
When using this clapper and guiro, toddlers and preschoolers will use ears and eyes supporting eye-hand coordination. They will feel the instruments, using large and small muscles of the hand, supporting motor skill development. They build connections between their physical and cognitive abilities. Musical sound stimulates nerve connections between brain cells that play an important role in cognitive development. Playing music alone and with others develops focus, concentration, and auditory perception.
