A bit of a different type of experience to try over Easter, and one the whole family can get involved in. Fill two plastic eggs with the same small items and close them. The idea is to match the two sounds together. What to put inside is up to you, children often have the best ideas for these types of games. A few suggestions are:

Dried peas

Dried pasta

Rice Krispies


Cotton wool

A coin



It is a great opportunity to link in attributes to the sound, soft, loud, grainy, swishy. It rattles, it tinkles, it claps, thuds, crackles etc. this helps with the development of language whilst being engaged in a listening game. See who gets them all right, if that's too easy why not time each other for an extra challenge.
