I collected “found” items to display on the tray with a sign, “What makes a sound?”, to invite children to explore.
The first tray has a variety of common “found” objects, and the second tray has a collection of various types of bells.
Objects I included are:
- Keys on a ring
- Paper to crumple
- Water in a bottle
- Retractable pen
- Easter egg with rice inside
- Nut inside its shell
- Finger cymbals
Other objects that could be included: velcro, zipper, rainstick, squeaky toy, coin purse with coins.
Children can use these just to hear the different sounds or play a sound guessing game with a friend.
The collection of bells includes:
- Jingle bells (different sizes)
- Desk bell (a.k.a. call bell)
