Inspiration for this idea came from Play School, I thought it was a great idea and it would be a lot of fun but Liam didn't overly enjoy it as he didn't want the towers to collapse. If you have a child that likes a little bit of destruction (which Liam normally does) this could be the activity for you.
You will need
1. Roll and or fold your paper into different shaped paper towers - we made a circle, square and triangle tower.
2. Name the shapes and then ask your child to predict which shape will hold more books or which tower they think is the strongest.
3. One by one add books on top of the tower counting out loud as you go
Liam thought the square tower would be the strongest
The square tower held 5 books
The triangle tower held 8 books
Our winner was the circle tower holding 12 books!
