Playing with boxes

Most young children enjoy playing with empty boxes! Many shops will give them to you.

Talk to your child about what their box could be. A big box can be a car, a castle or even a space rocket. A small box can be used to hide treasures, or to gather a collection of things.

A shoe box makes a great garage for small cars or a house for tiny people. You could decorate your box together, developing physical skills and encouraging your child’s creativity and  imagination.
