Timber slide whistle
This is a classic sounding slide whistle. Great for giving littlies the chance to practice some breath control and also talking about higher and lower pitch sounds. Children can use the slider to change the pitch - perhaps even directing someone elses movement up up up and down down down, matching the sound. Wind instrument play can contribute to greater awareness of breathing apparatus which can enhance speech and lung functioning. It is also simply fun! Great for sound effects during dramatic play.
Active music making can support family relationships and stimulate children's cognitive, motor and social development. And, it's fun!
