Fun to Play | Blocks and Boxes
for parents and their young children
Give your baby empty food containers to use as building blocks. Cardboard boxes, plastic tubs, egg cartons, paper towel rolls, and cans all make entertaining blocks to build with, sort out, and knock over. Putting things away in his cupboard is half the fun.
Give your baby plastic measuring cups that stack one inside the other, wooden spoons and plastic mixing bowls.
Place a small measuring cup on the floor and cover it with one mixing bowl. Ask your baby to find the cup. Continue this activity until he loses interest. These are all fun and exciting items for baby to play with. They are safe and readily available.
