You Will Need:
Empty oatmeal boxes or cans of different sizes
Tap a rhythm on a box with your hands. Give another box to your child and see if he will copy you. Then, see if he can repeat a simple beat.
Notice and comment on the difference in sound between sizes of boxes and/or cans. Make loud and soft sounds. Say things like, “How did you make that so loud? Did you hit it hard or soft?”
