How it Plays

To construct Box Blocks, collect a variety of sturdy cardboard boxes in assorted sizes: milk cartons, cereal boxes, disposable diaper boxes, shoe boxes, gift boxes, jewelry boxes, cosmetic boxes. Stabilize each by stuffing it with crumpled newspaper. Tape each box securely shut, and cover it with contact paper if you like.

Your child can assemble his blocks into a tower, barn, garage, airport, castle-whatever strikes his fancy. Add props and accessories such as rubber or plastic animals, vehicles, small dolls, and human figures. Take a picture of your child's construction so you can discuss it again later on.


What You'll Need

  •   Variety of sturdy cardboard boxes in assorted sizes: milk cartons, cereal boxes, disposable diaper boxes, shoe boxes, gift boxes, jewelry boxes, cosmetic boxes, etc.
  •   Newspaper
  •   Tape
  •   Contact paper (optional)
  •   Props and accessories

  • Learning and Growing

    When your young child builds with blocks, he is incorporating planning and predicting, problem solving, mathematics, and physics into his play. As your child grows older, his block play will become more complex as he uses blocks to represent experiences he has had, places he has gone, and things he has read about or imagined.
