Over here in Phoenix things are getting HOT! Because of these high temperatures, my toddler and I spend most of our days indoors finding creative ways to have fun. My son’s new found love: blocks! In fact, just the other day, sifting through the toy box, he kindly asked “blocks, please?” Looking for some creative ways to entertain your children this summer? Check out some of these learning activities with blocks.
I received Tegu Blocks in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Learning Activities With Blocks
Counting: Place your blocks into various various piles. Practice counting how many blocks are in each pile.
Stacking: Have a contest to see who can build the tallest tower the quickest. This is my son’s all-time favorite activity! His favorite part is knocking down the towers after we build them!
Colors: Using flashcards, match blocks to various colors.
Paint: Paint with blocks! Use your blocks to make fun patterns and shapes with your paint. Although this project might get a little messy, your little one will LOVE it!
Spelling: Use blocks to practice spelling words. For smaller kids, use the blocks to form the letters of the alphabet.
Train: Use your blocks to make a train. Using tape, create a train track for your block train to drive on.
Shapes: Use flash cards to practice finding and naming shapes.
Measure: Measure your favorite objects with blocks; stack blocks on top of each other to match the height of your favorite object.
Space: Fill in various shapes with blocks. This is a great spacial activity.
Zoo: Build a block zoo for all of your child’s favorite animals
