Listening Matching Game

While you are getting your Easter supplies out, give this Listening Matching Game a try….
Listening Matching Game
Fill your plastic eggs with different materials (2 eggs of each material) and try to match them up just by shaking and listening.
I got this package of eggs at the Target dollar spot. I liked that they were striped so B wouldn’t get confused and start matching them by color. In the different eggs I put a penny, 2 lima beans, rice, and macaroni. He helped me pick things to fill them with.
It was easier than I thought it was going to be and it was interesting to see how B went about figuring them out. After he played the game twice, he then wanted all of the eggs from his Easter basket out and he started filling them with random things from the playroom which was quite the mess!

    What a great idea! I am going to try this with my kids!. I don’t have striped eggs, but I will use all the same color. Thanks for sharing this!

    Fun! You could tie it in w/ five senses activities. This one for hearing. I did a couple of guessing games for the sense of smell-it was a hit w/ my kiddos.

    I LOVE this!! I made mine with 2 shades of the same color, which made it WAY too easy. Maddie just matched by color without bothering to listen to the sounds. Grrr. I’m totally down for making a Target trip to get some fancy striped eggs and trying again!

    We did the auditory eggs earlier this week. Older kids might like the scrambled sight word game too

    How funny that you put a penny in your eggs too! Just another reason that we must be twins separated at birth! I love the idea of matching the different sounds. Awesome! I’ll have to remember that for next year!
