What to do:
- Give infants and toddlers 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.
- Give children wooden spoons, plastic mixing bowls, and plastic measuring cups that stack one inside the other.
- Place a small measuring cup on the floor and cover it with one mixing bowl. Ask infants to find the cup. Continue this activity until they lose interest.
