Talk Through a Tube

Materials

  • Large, empty gift wrap tube

To Do

  1. Talk to the child through the tube.
  2. Experiment and make your voice sound different ways--high, low, squeeky, etc.
  3. See if the child will imitate you when you hand the tube to her. Say, "oh...you sound funny!"

Observations

Is this fun for the child?

Does she do it spontaneously again later?

More Ideas

An especially fun variation is to do this with a long length of (unused) dryer duct. You can even make it go around corners.

Children love to holler with a large bucket over their heads. (Supervise closely; be sure they are sitting down and don't attempt to walk with the bucket on their heads.)
