Peekaboo Box

Toddler Playtime

Everyday items make great toys. Give your child an empty box and a spoon. Let them see you put the spoon into the box. Do they watch? Shake the box. Reach in and take the spoon out. Giggle. Now it’s their turn. Give them the spoon. What do they do?

See what your child is learning

It’s a simple game, yet your child is exploring a big idea: Objects and people still exist even when you can’t see them. Although it will take until they’re around two to really learn this, the practice is fun! Play this game often to build the skill.
