Distinguishing Sounds Activity

4 Comments

I believe there are several versions of this activity.  I’m curious how you would structure this game.  I took three noisy items (keys, bells, and rocks), showed them to my toddler (almost 3 years old) and then placed the items in three brown bags.  I shook each bag and had B guess which item was in the bag.  He had to guess based only on the sound.  He also had fun reaching into the bags, feeling the items, and naming them – so distinguishing the items based on touch.  This activity encourages your toddler to pay attention, listen, and distinguish sounds.

Do you have a similar distinguishing sounds activity?

  1. Buy a few containers with lids (small Tupperware) add different amounts of beans such as kidney, Lima, rice, beads etc in the containers, present one at a time. Shake it by each ear and listen to the sound, you can grade the sounds – softest to hardest sound.

  2. This is a great idea and I think both my kids would love it! Thanks so much for linking up at MeetUp Monday! Hope to see you again tomorrow!
