Way to adapt

You can also use this as a memory game, place the object back in the box and ask your child to remember what it was.


For this one, look for boxes around your house that have different closing mechanisms, and put a toy/object in each one. You then encourage your baby/child to look for the toy, you can shake the box or open it to show what’s inside to get the child interested.


This activity is great for motor skills development and for teaching object permanence.
