Observe the child interacting with blocks, stacking cups, plastic or paper plates and cups, etc.
No elicitation needed, but an adult can model putting objects on top of each other to see if the child imitates the actions.
The infant will experiment with how to stack and combine the objects in different ways.
Encourage early childhood educators and parents to provide household items, such as paper plates and cups, pots and lids, empty clean cartons, etc. to play with and stack. Children are learning about directionality, spatial relations, and balance.
