Foam blocks or any household items that can be stacked
Ruler/ tape measure
Have your child start by stacking 6-8blocks up against the wall.
Then, using the ruler or tape measure, measure the length of the construction.
Add on more blocks as you go and challenge them to see how far up then can go.
Measure their height and have them go around the house looking for items that may be like their height. Get your child to first make an estimate of the things that would look like their height and then measure the item.
