If you haven’t been paying attention I have three boys. Although I’m sure that fondness of silly noises is universal, there seems to be a heightened awareness of them in boys. All I need to do to make 3-year old boy stop screaming is perform on the “stinky trumpet,” demonstrated below by 3-year old boy.
But rasberries are not the only way to make farting noises. No, indeed the whole house seems full of sources of this amusing sound. Here is a partial list of bottles that make farting noises:
- Dishwasher detergent (such as Cascade)
- Regular dish detergent (such as Ajax)
- Jelly from those squeezie bottles
- Certain salad dressings
Banging noises are also a favorite at our house. Here are things that are much fun to bang on:
- Pots & pans
- Older brothers
Perhaps the favorite thing to bang on is the washing machine. Striking that with two hands results in a very satisfying, sonorous BOOOOONNNNG. I’ve sometimes wondered where the thunder was coming from, only to find the boys in the laundry room banging on the washing machine.
