Echo Excitement

Your baby or toddler will be surprised to learn about echoes in this activity.

Echo Excitement


  • 5 to 10 minutes


  • Mailbox

While you are out on a walk, stop at your mailbox, lift up your baby, and as you open the lid, shout inside. The echo is terrific and will bring surprised looks and more calling and echoes. It is likely that this will become a favorite destination for walks.


  • Take turns hollering into the mailbox.
  • Sing a simple song into it.
