Take turns stacking things with your child to build a tower. Say, “My turn” as you stack one and then, “Your turn” as they do. Eventually, stop using words. Do they keep taking turns? Try to playfully break the rules and take two turns. What do they do?

See what your child is learning

You’re showing your child the importance of working together as you build, while also asking them to focus to make sure the tower stays up. They’re also using thier memory to keep track of whose turn it is, without your words to guide them.
