Our blocks area took a mini-vacation back in the summer and then we got very involved in magnets, and science experiments but they have been missed, so out they come again.
The block area is a key part of children's developing sense of size, weight, space, structure, form, architecture, and exploration.
Blocks of varying sizes, shapes, and texture add to the child's building experience. We will add sticks to our block area.
I also plan to add letter/word blocks in the coming weeks.
If you put your blocks away to make room for other areas/play, consider bringing them back out. Your children will create, build and play all day.
