The egg drum provides auditory and tactile information at the same time, combining a low booming sound with a simultaneous vibration when children hit the tongue of the drum. It's great for children who seek more auditory input, and the vibration is a nice feature for children with hearing impairments, as well as children who enjoy the tactile input. Children can use mallets or their hands, encouraging crossing at the midline, motor planning opportunities and proprioceptive input. Children may stand on the egg drum if they wish, and since the drum is designed to wobble they will also experience a vestibular motion. One to four children can play parallel, jointly or cooperatively. Children can even be included by sitting or standing beside the drum to feel the vibrations. The egg drum provides a great opportunity for children and adults to sing along with the drumming.
