Hone your hearing skills in a fun auditory contest with a few friends willing to lend an ear.
Begin by writing the names of a variety of noisemaking items (such as a blender, a car engine, a squeaky door, a lawn mower, or a barking dog) on small pieces of paper, then put the papers in a hat or basket.
Select one person to go first. He draws a slip of paper, takes a look at the word he has selected, and begins making sounds associated with that item. For example, if the paper he drew read "Telephone," he might start making ringing noises or mimicking a busy signal.
The other players try to guess what the item is, with the first person to answer correctly leading off the next round.
