Game: Match the Sounds

This "Match the Sound" game helps children listen carefully and pick out differences in the sounds.  The children in my classes have always enjoyed playing it.  It can get messy if they open the eggs quickly.  So be prepared!












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. 

Caution:  be careful using small objects with little children!

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!

Have fun!

  3. Children would like this any time, not just in the spring. Many K through 2 classes teach sound, and children get so excited about things like this. Don't put them away after Easter and the siblings who wait for your music students can entertain themselves with this fun activity. Brilliant! Carolyn
