Starting today, I have decided to post about various tools that I love to use as a music therapist. I'm going to call it "Therapy Tools Tuesday", for lack of a better, more cool title. :) These tools include instruments, CDs, totes, storage bins, and in general, anything that I feel helps me get through a day in my life as a music therapist.
My very first Therapy tool post will be about a pair of great shakers called Wrist Egg Shakers.
I recently purchased them here, and have found them to be very useful with the populations I serve (students that have difficulty grasping and holding instruments, or students who have difficulty holding objects and moving them without dropping them).
They are also handy to use with students who can use shakers well, but have a history of throwing them. You can easily place them in the palm of their hands and velcro around the back of their hands.
The wrist egg shakers are sold in pairs and are made from a durable nylon strap with velcro for securing it to the wrist. I have found them to be extremely durable and easy to clean with clorox wipes. That's an automatic plus in my opinion!
These wrist egg shakers are currently $4.75/pair so I highly recommend that you check them out!
Feel free to comment and share your therapy tools too!
