Building Up/Knocking Down

What to do:

  1. Make a block tower, or stack empty containers that have lids on them.
  2. Encourage children to make one like yours. Begin with three blocks. Add one, then have a child add the next one.
  3. See how high children can stack the blocks. Count the number of blocks in the stack.


  • You build the tower and invite a child to knock it down.
