Materials:

Used fruit cups (cleaned)

String or yarn

Directions: Poke a hole in the bottom of two fruit cups.  Thread the string through the bottom of each cup and tie a knot.

Activity: One child whispers into a cup and the other child (adult) listens in the other cup.  It takes some practice, but it is a great way to help encourage listening skills.

 

VARIATION:

“Telephone.”  Children (and adults) sit in a circle.

One person starts by whispering something into the ear of the person next to him.  Each person whispers to the next person what he thought he heard.  It is so much fun to see if what the last person hears is the same as what the first person whispered.
