Fine Motor and Large Motor Activity: Large Object Stacking

X loves building. He loves his Mega Bloks, wooden blocks, etc. Building is one of the activities that holds his attention the longest. My husband also loves building, so it’s an activity they often do together happily. Building is great for fine motor development, hand eye coordination, balance… The list goes on. I wanted to build on that list though! Couldn’t we find a way to work in some gross motor development too?? Of course!
I’ve been collecting empty containers and boxes and such to use in different activities and crafts. Today we pulled them out and did some large scale building! Not only did he work on all the great skills above, but he need to stand up and down to stack the items higher and higher! Then he got to play Godzilla and run through knocking them all down!

We had a blast, worked in some important skills and it didn’t cost a penny!
