Teach Your Child at Home: Part 3

I got this idea from a Montessori book. I played a game with my three year-old that helped him learn to distinguish between sounds.
Just fill four same-sized containers with items that sound different when shaken. We used what we had in the pantry: rice, beans, corn kernels, and sugar.

Let your kid shake them and test how they sound different. Then blindfold him and see if he can tell which is which.
Another game to help your child with tactile learning is putting items in a bag (we used a ball, a small pumpkin, a hairbrush, a washcloth, and a pencil), blindfolding him, and telling him to figure out what the objects are without looking.
Two more and easy games to play with your child.
Oh, and my Monkey See, Monkey Do shop is being spotlighted over at So You Think You're Crafty today. Go check it out. And if you're a considering becoming an Etsy user, check out ShopLocket while you're at it.
