My preschoolers have always loved playing with blocks! My 5 year old still plays with her blocks during quiet time a few days a week.
We love blocks. There are so many creative and imaginative ways you can play with blocks. Just recently I have seen some really cool printables that can turn block free time play into a real learning experience! A lot of these ideas come from preschools, where teachers have block stations set up, but there is no way you can’t do this in your own home!
