BLOCKS FOR KIDS- TIP OF THE WEEK
June 4, 2013
Try to build a spiral staircase from wooden blocks. This is not as easy as you would think. What building blocks do you need to support the stairs as they wind upward? Do you use the same size of blocks in your stairs or do you have to use consecutively smaller ones? Try it and see. Can you make it go around 360 degrees? Build your spiral staircase first then add a great castle or mansion around it with your wooden building blocks.
“Cool” Building Project For A Hot Summer Day
Super hot day outside? Cool down by building an igloo out of wooden blocks. Smaller length blocks are the ones that will work best for this project. This may be a real fun challenge for an elementary age child. Start by laying the blocks in the round shape of an igloo. Then add each new level by placing a block on top of where two of the bottom layer of blocks meet. Each new layer should be a little bit more to the center of the round circle. Make up a story, add some Eskimos, polar bears or penguins to create a fun, cool scene. What other round structures can you build? Maybe a silo for a farm or the Leaning Tower Of Pisa?
Build “Outside The Box”
See how tall your child can build a wooden block tower with only their non-dominant hand. How many blocks difference is there when they build with their dominant hand? Can you stack blocks using no hands? How would you do that? With your elbows, or maybe your toes?
A”maze”ing Fun With Building Blocks For Kids
Make a maze of toy blocks. Put a ping-pong ball in the maze and have the kids race through the maze by blowing the ball with a straw. Make two copies of the maze and have them race each other side by side through their “amazing” maze of wooden blocks.

What Shapes Of Blocks Are Best For A 3 Year Old?
3 year olds like wooden blocks in simple geometric forms without too many complicated shapes. They are ready to use some different shapes of blocks so they can build things more complex than a simple tower. However, triangles and arches are not heavily used at this age. Look for a wooden block set that contains mostly plain squares and rectangles of different sizes, along with a few triangles, wedges, arches and cylinders.

Block Center Activity For Your Daycare, Preschool Or Classroom
Have a block center in your daycare, preschool or classroom? Put a strip of paper up the wall near your building block area. A roll of adding machine tape would work well. When a child builds a great tower of wooden blocks, measure the tower and make a mark on the paper. Add the child’s name and date by the mark. The kids will be so proud and it will encourage them to build higher next time. You may find a spontaneous building blocks competition will begin.The block center may become the favorite play area. Make some rules such as how long the tower must stand to be measured at it’s height. Point out things characteristics of the highest creations. What type of wooden blocks were used? What type of base did the tower have? Make it fun but also help them learn from this fun activity with building blocks for kids.
