Done during Group

"Act out the fox’s balancing act with some cardboard boxes. Shoe boxes or boxes around that size work best for this. Tape the boxes so the flaps and lids don’t come off during the stacking game. Put two “X’s” on the floor with masking tape. Have your preschooler stand on one “X” and hold a box on their head while they walk to the other “X.” He should make it there without too much trouble with the one box, but no judgment if he doesn’t. Once he reaches it, put another box on top of the first box and have him walk back to the starting point. Continue going back and forth, adding one box on top each time he successfully makes it to an “X.” The game ends when the boxes fall. Count how many he successfully transported. Now, your turn."
