TRY THIS:

Voice Identification

For this exercise you will need a tape recorder and 4-10 children. Have each person speak 2-3 sentences into the tape recorder. As you are leading the activity, write down the order in which the kids spoke. After each child has had a turn speaking into the tape recorder, play the recording. Ask the children to listen carefully and identify each voice. Remind them that as they have to listen carefully to identify whose voice is whose, they must also listen carefully for God's voice during everyday activities.

TRY THIS:  Blindfold one student, and have them walk up to another and ask who it is. Have the child try to fool the blindfolded one by disguising his/her voice, and see if the blindfolded guesser can determine who it is.
