Children love blocks. They love to build and knock down and build again. There is something extremely satisfying about handling the wooden shapes, and free wooden blocks are only limited by the imagination which the child brings to their play. Blocks are about maths, science, creativity, and so much more. Both boys and girls enjoy using them and the block area is a stimulating play area for children of all ages, from infants up to school age.Inspired to build is aimed at parents, educators and teachers providing learning experiences for groups of children in an early childhood education centre or at home. It provides practical suggestions for stocking, displaying and facilitating play in the block area. I hope you will enjoy unlocking the potential of block play!
