Soft and Loud Activity

I made this file folder game years ago for a class.

  The other day I thought I would enrich the activity since my 2 1/2-year-old mastered it weeks ago (actually she figured it out the first time playing -- smarty pants).  I took one of the "free" magazines that shows up at our house.  We cut out different scenes or items and decided what was soft or loud.

 Then she just put them on the correct side.  It was interesting to do.  I let her decide if something was soft or loud unless it was obviously wrong, such as a train.  Many things could fall into both.  I asked her to explain why if she could.  Still working on those skills.

Other categories for cutting apart a magazine:

  • Alive or not alive
  • big or small
  • colors
  • animals or people
  • Hard or soft
  • Wet or dry
  • Food -- healthy or unhealthy, fruits or vegetables
  • Fast or slow

Thanks for reminding me about soft and loud. Great variations you have. I like your game.

I like how you added in your own pictures after you used the one from the game.
