Food Building Blocks PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.

Teach your child about different foods with these fun building blocks.

What You Need:


  • Photos of different food items

  • Boxes

  • Scissors (for adult use only)

  • Glue

What To Do:


  1. Cut out a variety of different food items from magazines, newspapers, or food boxes.

  2. Use old boxes to create building blocks. Stuff the boxes with old newspapers to help maintain their shape. Tape the open ends closed to make six flat surfaces.

  3. Glue different pictures on each surface. The bigger the picture, the better. You can glue one food item per surface or group the foods by color or food group.

  4. As you are making your blocks, talk to your infant about the different foods. Let your infant enjoy playing with the boxes as long as they remain sturdy.
