Play Whack-a-Shape

Make your own version of whack-a-mole, with a shape-learning twist. Take a diaper box and cut out shapes from one side. Tape up the open side, but cut a hole you can reach your arm into to retrieve the shapes later. Take the cut-outs and place them back in their holes. Give your child a toy hammer, and let him whack the shapes into the box.
