This guiro provides children with opportunities to explore different sound and work on different developmental skills. The mallet is stored in a hole at the end of the guiro, which children love!
They practise pincer grip, and eye hand coordination by removing and holding and playing with the mallet. They can produce frog like sounds when scraping up and down the sides of the guiro, plus they can shake it like a regular shaker to accompany any song.
This is a very versatile instrument enabling children of different ages and abilities to make try different sounds and beats.
The guiro appeals to different ages as it can be used to shake or for more complex rhythmic work and eye-hand coordination work for older children.
