Toppling Tower

Chances are you have lots of empty snack boxes if you have kids. Instead of recycling, set them aside and build up a collection. Now you have all you need for building towers with your baby!

For about a week, I saved every empty snack box and cereal boxes. Tape the tops closed, if needed, so no edges stick out. First, I dumped out the bag in front of Veronika. Instant fun!

Then we got building. You can encourage your baby to place one box on top of another, but don’t be surprised if the preferred activity is knocking down! This post is called toppling tower, after all.

We even got into some pretend play and made a garage for her vehicles.

Add in real building blocks to make the structure more complicated (soft foam ones are my favorite for this age).

This tower, too, needed to be toppled of course.

This kind of early STEM activity will help build new connections in your baby’s brain, plus provide lots of enjoyment!
