HABA Shakin Eggs- How We learn with them

We love educational toys in this house. In fact so much that when we get a new toy the kids always say ” I can’t wait to LEARN with this ….”. HABA’s Shakin Eggs are no different. These adorable wooden eggs that are so beautifully made help with auditory recognition, color recognition, patterning, matching, fine and gross motor skills and so much more.
We are always working on auditory learning and sound differentiation in our house. Both my boys are speech delayed and so sounding out as well as just listening to different sounds is something we are constantly working on to make sure their hearing is not the issue.
Talking about colors was a no brainer. While yes these fantastic little eggs make beautiful sounds when shaken and twisted they are also delightfully colored. We talk about the different colors and also about how even though their are different shades of the same color they may look different but they belong to the same color family.
While talking about sounds we talk about each sound that particular egg makes so that I can ask for the egg that makes the shaka shaka sound, for the egg that makes the clickity click sound, the egg that makes the jingle sound etc. So that my son has to think and listen to each egg to find the sound I am asking him for.

Below is the different sounds these eggs make.
