You Will Need:
Empty cardboard boxes – cereal, shoeboxes, oatmeal box, etc.
Photographs of familiar people or things
Glue pictures to the boxes then cover them with clear contact paper. Encourage your baby to build, stack, knock over, and look at the pictures.
Talk about who or what you see in the pictures. “Who is that, is that mommy? There’s Daddy.” Infants will only play with at few blocks at a time so you only need four or five. It is helpful for them to be similar in size and small enough to hold easily. Older children would like more variety and have better motor control to stack different sizes.
