Set and hide an egg timer somewhere in a room. Have your child
try to find it before or after it rings.
Using a tape recorder, record a variety of songs around
your house with which your child is familiar. Examples,
water running, pouring milk, clock, timer, furnace, washing
machine, etc. As you play the tape for your child have
her try to name what the sound is.
WAKE UP BELL
Play a simple game of pretending to sleep and waking up when
you hear a bell ring. Take turns with your child being the
sleeper and ringing the bell.
START / STOP
Using two noise makers, such as, a bell and
a drum, instruct your child to walk when he hears the
bell and to stop when he hears the drum. Your child
will want a turn making the sounds, too.
Make animal sounds for your child to identify.
Small black film cans are great for this activity.
Fill 8 cans with food items. (2 with salt; 2 with
rice; 2 with macaroni, 2 with large dried beans.)
Seal cans and mix them up. Have your child try
to find matching sounds.
