Stack up the math

Nesting cups and blocks are excellent ways to introduce your baby to spatial relationships, reasoning and other toddler math concepts. Through trial and error, your baby will learn the correct stacking order and will understand the spatial relationship of how small items fit inside larger items. For added fun, use plastic bowls or empty food boxes to create your own nesting and stacking toys. Playing with nesting cups and stacking blocks will also strengthen motor skills and hand-eye coordination, while promoting familiarity with basic shapes and colors.
