GIFT BOX GAMES
PRESENTS
Wrap up a number of boxes of different sizes.
Set them out and have your child sort the boxes according to size. Smallest to largest.

 
NESTING BOXES
For this game just use the bottoms of boxes.
Find four to six different sized boxes (where the bottom of one will fit inside another),
Set out the boxes and have your child nest the boxes one inside the other, until they are all nested together.
Variation: You can also have your child turn the box bottoms up-side down and stack them up, largest to smallest.
 
WHAT’S INSIDE

Place an obvious object inside a box and wrap it up.
Let your child try to guess what is inside the box.
Let your child wrap up an object and try to stump you.
 
BOX TOSS
Set out a box on the floor, without the lid on.
Give your child four small (safe to toss objects, such as bean bags or cotton balls)
Let your child practice tossing the objects into the box.
 
BOX MATCH

Wrap tops and bottoms of boxes separately.
Set them out and have your children match up the wrapping designs.
 
BOX COLOR MATCH
Take 3-4 small boxes, without lids.
Wrap each box a different basic color, red, blue, yellow and green.
Set out several (8-10) small toys that are each one of these colors.
Have your child sort the toys by matching colors and placing the toys in the matching box.
