How Does It Work?
When you pound the colored Palm Pipe into the palm of your hand, it disturbs the air molecules inside the tube. The action of these molecules creates the vibration that becomes the note you hear.

Are these appropriate for early childhood?
Palm Pipes are a great experiment to do with early childhood. When you tap the different pipes and let them hear the difference, it is stimulating one of their 5 senses and you can work from there.

How are they different from Boomwhackers?
The Palm Pipes need to be hit against the palm to make the different sounds, as opposed to the Boomwhackers, which can be hit against anything. Palm Pipes are also a lot more manageable because of their size.
