Putting Things Together - Kids, Blocks, Math.

We seem to be doing a lot of building and assembling lately. A lot of it can't be shown right now - we don't want to give away Christmas surprises!

Little Bit is especially interested in boats lately, so she decided to build one.

Blocks help children with concepts like volume, number, size and spatial relations. These blocks also get used for spelling (they are alphabet blocks) from time to time. The board she is playing on is a scrap of quarter-inch plywood with some felt glued over it. It is firm enough for building towers and buildings, and a lot quieter than the kitchen floor.
