Easy five minute activities - stacking boxes

Another very simple activity that can be arranged with virtually nothing.  Actually, I'll be honest.  This activity happened all by itself, I just came across it and joined in!

Get a set of boxes that all fit inside one another.  You get shoeboxes in increasing sizes as your children grow, or these boxes were part of a set from Thorntons Chocolate Shop which were a Christmas gift (filled with goodies!  Thanks Tim).

C spent ages putting the boxes on top of and inside one another and working out which lids went with which.  Then I got involved and we started talking about bigger, smaller, biggest and smallest, and arranging the boxes in increasing and decreasing order of size.

Now I just have to think what to put inside such gorgeous boxes!
