Play the listening game

Once your child goes through the printables and learns about the ear canal and the bones in the middle of the year, why not play a game using their ears as well.

The listening game is where you give directions and see how well they can follow. It’s very similar to Simon Says but this can be played with just one person and it’s more about a series of directions being given to see how well they’re paying attention.

Play the telephone game

Talk about a classic game that literally uses the ear 100%. Get the rest of the family to join in on the fun and then sit and whisper a sentence into someone’s ear. That person then whispers what they heard you say into someone else’s ear and down the line, it goes. The last person to get the sentence has to say what they heard out loud.

Will the sentence be what you said or will it be something totally different?

Pull up pictures of animals and talk about how different the ears are in size
