Playing With Wooden Blocks

Too tired to pick-up after yourself? Well, it can still be done!  Just plant yourself in a restful position, and if it's not too much of a stretch, gently toss your mess back into it's container. I should have taken some before pictures!  Jude had just spent over 30 minutes, sorting, building and knocking down his blocks.  Not too many toys can keep his attention that long!  Blocks are a great toy to have around for toddlers, especially since they've been linked to strengthening math and problem solving skills...just watch where you're walking after dark!

P.S.  Any of you saved your kids blocks to hand down to your grandchildren? Or any other treasures?

  1. Blocks can be a bit painful to step on, but they aren't as bad as Legos. My kids had something called Bristle Blocks, and they were really a hazard! In spite of the mess, blocks are the best!

  2. Gosh, I remember Bristle Blocks. My feet are hurting just thinking about them. Wonder if they're still out there?
