Give the child six or seven cube shaped blocks (any size)
No elicitation needed. If the child does not spontaneously stack the blocks, demonstrate what the child can do. “See if you can build them high.”
Children typically will experiment with placing blocks in different ways, including stacking.
Help parents understand the importance of blocks for learning about math concepts such as shapes, number, space, and spatial relationships. Parents can buy inexpensive blocks or make them from boxes of different sizes with the lids taped on.
