How to Play The Listening Game

This is a great campfire game, or a fun thing to do during a day hike break. 

Everyone finds a comfortable place to sit and closes their eyes.  Silently, to themselves, they should count the sounds they hear until they reach ten sounds.  Then everyone can open their eyes and share the sounds they heard. 

You’ll be amazed at how well you can tune out certain sounds once you’ve already counted them, moving on to the faintest sounds of nature. 

A variation of this game involves counting things in nature that are a particular color, such as orange, purple, or red.
