What's That Sound?

ages 3-6


Various household objects that you can make sounds with (shake keys, tear paper, close a cabinet door, shut a book, etc.)

Activity Detail

Try this activity to help your child learn to identify different sounds. Gather different noisemaking props in advance and don't let your child see them. Stand behind your child's back and make different noises with your props. Then see if he or she can guess what is making the noise. If your child has trouble guessing, make the sound again and give him or her clues: This is something I use to drive the car or This is something that we read every night.

This is kind of the auditory version of the "trace a letter/number/shape on your back" and guess what it is exercise. Very fun and great to engage all of the senses in integrating concepts!

This activity is good for children to recongize noises. This would be a great thing to do on a rainy day.

This is a good activity to do while you are standing in line with your children. Pull out a change purse and rattle it, jangle your keys, unzip the zipper on your wallet and you have saved yourself from a melt-down!
