A natural version of our painted mahogany egg shaker. These ones have designs burnt onto them which were created by some Balinese primary school children. This one is also known as the ‘giant’ egg shaker.

These egg shakers are great for everyone. Young children seem to particularly like these especially when there are a collection of them.

We have included this one in our Egg Basket and Lots and Littles Music Kits.

N.B. For SEN settings – please put a note with your order to indicate that it’s needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.

Product Information

What's included

Just shake it. Try one in each hand for a challenge. If you shake it from end to end, it will make a different sound from if you shake it from side to side. If you want to get it really in time hold the egg loosely-ish in your fist and use the natural movement of your elbow joint to get a more regular shake happening. This will produce a more in time shake than with your wrist movement.  

In fact egg shakers can be played in a number of ways: for the loudest sound hold lightly in the fingertips and shake; for a more subdued sound, hold firmly in the palm of the hand. You can also knock two eggs together to produce a percussive effect. Hold an egg with its narrow end in the palm of each hand and knock the wider ends together, cupping the hands together as you do so. The more you cup your hands, the lower the knocking sound produced.
