Common household items that can be used to make sounds: a ball, pencil, glass, etc.
Use an object to make a sound, such as bouncing a ball, tapping a pencil on a glass, running water, or clicking your fingers. Say to your child, “Can you guess what is making that sound? Is it a ball? “; “Do you want to hear it again?”; “That’s a ball bouncing.” As your child gets older, have her tell you what is making the sound.
This activity can be done anywhere, anytime. If your child is getting restless in the car, this activity may soothe her. New sensations attract attention and making new noises stimulates curiosity and language development. It is through early conversations that infants’ language capacity grows.
