Sometimes the simplest of activities is very enjoyable for toddlers and preschoolers. We have a nice set of foam blocks that Big Red had gotten as a present from his aunt a few years ago. I have been very cautious to keep them in very good condition by making sure they are put back into their zippered pouch.
Lil’ Red is just at the right age to really be able to enjoy this set of foam blocks. This particular set is really awesome since it comes with letter, numbers, and objects with words. We have used this set of blocks for all sorts of fun learning.
Stacking blocks and knocking them down is by far one of the funnest things a young child can do. It’s a great way to learn cause and effect. Stacking the blocks as high as they will go before tumbling over is Science.
Leaning letters and number can be more fun when playing with hands-on objects like foam blocks.
