During playtime have a variety of shape blocks, measuring cups (without long handles) or stacking cups, and a shape puzzle, trucks, small people and farm animals in a bag or two.
No elicitation needed.
The child will line up, stack and arrange blocks, but not combine them to make new shapes.
Children are beginning to make representations with blocks. They see the blocks as individual shapes, but they do not see the blocks as part of larger shapes.
