In my family it’s common to hear, “One of the best toys to give children is a box.” Some of my favourite memories as a child revolved around playing with large boxes (we moved a lot!) At school I also try to incorporate boxes into play. Nowadays, it’s a little less cardboard boxes and a little more rubbermaid containers. I have found that boxes are a great way to teach children about prepositions and work on play skills at the same time. They are also portable so you can work in the therapy room, classroom, in the gym or outside.
