Build Up and Topple Down



Ever wonder why babies are always knocking things over? They are learning! Playing with and knocking over blocks is a great way for kids to learn about gravity, and cause and effect. Plus, they can learn colors and patterns too!

How To

What You’ll Need:

  • Blocks of all shapes, sizes, weights, and colors
    • Large and small soft blocks
    • Wooden blocks
    • Plastic interlocking blocks


Place one block on the floor or a low table and stack more on top one at a time. Count the blocks as you add them to the tower. Build the tower as high as you can and then let your child knock it down with his hands or feet.
