Give your child two plastic tubs or old boxes and ask them to choose safe things like toys or spoons to put inside. Ask questions about more and less, empty and full. You can say, “I wonder which box has more spoons? How can we find out” See what ideas they come up with!
See what your child is learning
As they work with objects and containers, your child is practicing problem solving while exploring math and science ideas like space, shape, number, and size. They’re also using focus and self-control to grasp the items, put them inside, and think about what they see.
