Sensory 4

Skills

  • This set can be used to introduce different sounds to children.
  • Children enhance motor planning skills when playing the instruments.

Play Ideas

  • Explore different sounds by using the drumsticks on different surfaces. Some surfaces to try are: drum, floor, table, over-turned plastic containers of different sizes, carpets, and chairs.
  • Add different objects in the drum and then play the drum to see how it sounds differently when it has dried beans and rice, small stuffed animals, or other instruments inside.
  • Children can close their eyes and attempt to identify the instrument that they pick up.

Adaptation Ideas

  • Add a cloth on the bottom of the drum. This will help muffle the sound when the instruments are dropped inside.
  • For children who are visually impaired, attach the instruments to the play space with a short cord to prevent instruments from being dropped or pushed out of reach. Note: Cords should be no longer than 10” and direct supervision is required.

Communicative 4

Skills

  • Action words such as go/stop when playing the instruments and in/out when taking the toys from the container can be introduced during play.
  • There are eight instruments in this set to help encourage parallel, interactive and cooperative play.
  • Encourage vocalizations during music time. Have the child make a sound they are working on in speech therapy each time they hit the drum or shake the maraca.

Play Ideas

  • Create a marching band and have the children follow the leader while playing their instruments.
  • Sing a familiar song such as, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” or “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” while playing these instruments.
  • Tap or shake an instrument for each word in a sentence. For instance, “My name is Bobby.”
