Bring together some familiar objects. These might be toys or pictures of things your child likes. These will go in their ‘sound box’.
Next, put the objects in a box. You can use a pillowcase or bag if you can’t find a box that works.
Sit with your little one and the box. Make the sound of something that’s in the box. For example, a cow goes ‘moo’, a dog goes ‘bark’, or a car goes ‘vroom’! Ask your child to find the toy that makes that noise.
Encourage them to rummage through the box and find the right thing. When they find it, praise them and say what the object is. For example, ‘Well done, you found the cow!’.
Good to know
Games with sounds help your child learn to listen better, which is useful for when they’re ready to communicate.
