Make sure you have plenty of items to place into the box to get started with this game. Put some items in the box that you and your child may like to try. Once your child is done, have her come out and have fun with it again.
Another activity for toddlers is the coloring activity. Take pictures of the things in the box. You may want to have two or three boxes in which to place pictures. Allow your child to color the picture from left to right by making a small circle on each side with a pencil.
