This "Match the Sound" game helps children listen carefully and pick out differences in the sounds.
Start with a bag of empty Easter eggs.
Gather different objects to put inside the eggs. Ideas: pennies, buttons, beads, beans, rice, cut-up straws, safety pins, barrets and cut-up toothpics.
Fill at least 2 eggs with the same objects.
The Game: Have the children take turns shaking the eggs and finding two that sound the same. Carefully open the eggs to see if they guessed correctly!
