The Boy likes knocking over blocks. He’s not stacking yet, but knocking down is a favorite. Supposedly, eventually, he’ll progress to the next level of stacking and building, so I am starting work on a project of building him something better than the little blocks he has now. The ones he has now are passable, but not as engaging as some others.
Sure, they look super cool and vaguely distressed (and distressing). However, I am not about to pay $85 for 10 blocks. What I’ll do instead is take a mess of 2x1s and start cutting them into various shapes with the mitre saw. Then, I’ll get some appropriate paints and paint them for him. I am thinking about somehow incorporating images on them for a puzzle activity for him to figure out.
I’ll keep you posted.
