Talk Through a Tube


  • 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, " sound funny!"


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.)
