Activity: The Sound of a Number

You will need: a musical instrument (such as a drum or a bell) or anything that can make a sound


The purpose of the game is for your child to count how many times you make the same sound. They have to listen and count the sound. For example, if you are using a bell, shake it slowly three times. Your child should count the number of times you rang the bell.


Once they understand the activity, ask them to count silently in their head. You can also get them to close their eyes as they focus on the sound you make.


Depending on your child’s counting skills, you can try counting to 10 or 20.
