Observe the child with blocks or other stackable items.
Provide small items, such as blocks and ask, “How high can you stack them?”
The child stacks 8-10 small items.
Early parents can provide small (but still safe-sized) blocks. Children learn about balance and precise placement by building tall building towers. Make it fun, by building together and then knocking them down with toy trucks.
