Let's do this!

Favorite and conveniently book Kid Experts for sessions throughout the site.

In this activity, babies develop their fine and gross motor skills, doing something that they love – playing with boxes! Smaller boxes are wrapped up with recycled newspaper or wrapping paper, so that your baby can rip and pull them open. We will also stack up boxes (this can be done in different areas such as on the floor or on the couch, as an early lesson in balance), knock them down, watch them tumble, hide them, and move them around.

Sample Activities and Instructions

Your Kid Expert will show the baby how to stack boxes. Then, it’s the baby’s turn to try! Your Kid Expert will give assistance and positive encouragement.
We set up boxes up and knock them down, playfully encouraging the baby to do the same, and repeat. Your Kid Expert will put a favorite toy on top of the box pile, tumbling them over and causing the baby to giggle with surprise and excitement.
Your Kid Expert will put a box behind a chair, letting the baby see it is placed there. The baby can scoot over to try to retrieve it as the game is continued.
Babies also love the sound of ripping paper and the tactile sense of pulling something off or out. Your Kid Expert will wrap up smaller boxes with recycled newspaper and give them to the baby to handle and rip open.
