You can use a a standard egg carton and 12 eggs or larger! Make sure to choose six pairs of distinct sounds to put in each pair of the eggs.

You can use things like jingle bells, beads, soft little chicks, buttons, hard plastic animals and erasers! You could also try small rocks or sand. Just put tape over the little hole if you use a fine material like sand!

  1. I love the listening game with easter eggs! What a creative idea! My toddler loves music, and listening to different noises! Everytime he hears a song, or even someone humming, he’ll start to dance and sing himself! I think he’d have a blast with this! I also love the easy set up – anything that would only take a few minutes to prep is always a plus!
