Sounds Like Fun!

This activity goes along with Lesson 3 in our workbook, About Me.

Here is a  listening game that is loads of fun – your child will want to play it over and over again!

You’ll need the following supplies:

  1. Popcorn seeds
  2. Marbles
  3. Raisins
  4. Rice
  5. Coins
  6. Toothpicks
  7. Pebbles
  8. Raw shell pasta
  9. Oat Cereal

First, download our Matching Sounds Mat (Lesson 3) and print out. We put ours in a page protector.

Fill 9 plastic Easter eggs with the supplies. This game is trickier if the eggs are all the same color.

Ask your child to heft, shake, and listen to each egg.
He can guess what’s in them by placing each on it’s corresponding square on the mat.
When he is done guessing, your child can open each egg to see if he’s correct. 
It’s pretty cool to see him light up when he gets it right!

Why We Like It:

  1. Kids like the colorful mat and the opportunity to “guess” by placing eggs on the squares.
  2. Kids excitedly anticipate the completion of the game, when they get to see how many eggs they guessed correctly.
  3. This is a good introduction to the process of elimination and is not as easy as it looks – it might take your child a few practices to get them all right!
