You thought blocks only had one purpose! Think again! In this chronicle you will see that you can both draw and invent stories with blocks.
Add velcro to the blocks
Sometimes there are some brakes when creating a block sculpture, for example, putting the cubes diagonally or creating uneven pyramids. Neutralize the limits of the possible by giving it a self-adhesive velcro strip. By attaching them to the blocks, the child will be able to solidify his work and create great montages.
Painting with building blocks
Painting is always fun, but sometimes it feels good to swap the brush for other objects. Blocks are a great way to develop your little artist's creativity. You can use different kinds and different sizes to create several prints. To clean them, simply put them in the dishwasher in a mesh bag (to wash your bra). It's simple, but very effective!
The block dictation
Is it dictation time or do you want to teach your child a few words? With a black marker,write the letters of the alphabet on your blocks. A little basic advice: multiply the vowels by two or three since several words contain several. Ask your child to write the word by stacking the letters. You will give another dimension to the word. This is a fun way to do homework right?
Telling Story Cubes
Have blank wooden blocks at home? Now is the time to decorate them. Draw an object, a place, an insect, a means of transport or whatever comes to mind on each of the surfaces of the block. Shake them like dice and with the sequence of random illustrations you have created, imagine a story with your child. You can drag these cubes with you to fill small waiting times and the possibilities are endless!
Objective: Make a strike! Create a kind of castle to replace bowling pins. There are no height or width limits. Then grab a ball or even an apple right before the snack and try to roll it fast enough to knock down all the pieces in your castle. Try to avoid scuppers preferably!
