Kid's Corner

     Harmonic Kids Drums, Rattles , Children's Drum Beater & Personal Shield

 


Here at Gaia's Workshop we believe that children are born with all the magick we've forgotten, and we want to encourage parents to help them remember.  Our children's drums are made almost exactly like our Harmonic Shamanic drums (they have 10 lacings instead of 15 so each handle has 2 lacings to make our standard 5-sided handle), except sized down for smaller hands.  Our children's drums are 10" in diameter by 2" deep.  They come with a colorful deer suede wrapped handle.

I have always been a bit concerned when I see small children in drum circles trying to use adult beaters.  I have developed a safe alternative for younger children -- stuffed and sounding much like a regular drum beater, but with no sharp edges, sticks or other accidents ready to happen.  The padded center is comfortable for small hands, and either end can be used to play the drum. They are sewn with cotton embroidery thread instead of sinew for even more child-friendly construction.  Best of all, they come in bright colors (see below).


Harmonic Shamanic Kid's Drum

Both Deer and Horse Kids drums are made with a scalloped head.

All Harmonic Kids Drums come with a soft, deer suede handle wrap in your choice of color for comfortable playing.

Wrap comes in Black, Red, Tan, Gold, Turquoise, White, Pink, Purple or Blue


Red Stag Deer Harmonic Kid's Drum

Harmonic Shamanic Kid's Deer Drum for Children by Gaia's Workshop

Represented in Neolithic cave paintings 40,000 years ago in Europe, the deer has been an important helper to humans worldwide.  Deer represents love and circulation. Deer drums are light to medium in color and have an extremely resonant tone with sustained harmonics.  The deer drum is associated with the heart chakra and carries a feminine energy.
