Description

Maracas were created and first used by the native Indians of Puerto Rico: the Tainos, as a percussion musical instrument.  A pair of these are used to create the unique rumba rhythm sound so common in Latin American and Puerto Rican music.  The original Maracas are made from the fruit of the higuera tree so common throughout Puerto Rico.

Should you wish to make your own Maracas put seeds or beans inside gourds, and shake them.  Toddlers and young children gain great pleasure in developing rhythmic sounds when playing these instruments, and they can easily be absorbed into any musical group. The sound encourages the Child to sway and dance to the music, which aids gross motor development.
