Animal castanets – timber
These gorgeous animal castanets look and sound great. The tension in the elastic is just right for small hands and will encourage the development of fine motor skills in the hand and fingers – so important for easing the transition to correct pencil holding and promoting ongoing coordination in the fingers.
Initially there might be a lot of tasting the instrument and trying to pull them apart with two hands, but that’s all part of the fun. Shortly you’ll be clicking along to Five Little Ducks, Galumph or Three Little Speckled Frogs… or even Open Shut them. getting those fingers working and lips smiling!
Diameter approximately 6 cm.
Available in Duck, Frog and Ladybird shapes.
