Read this post to learn all about the 30 Days to Hands on Play Challenge I'm participating in, hosted by Jamie from hands on : as we grow and Anna from The Imagination Tree.
Day 3 Challenge:
I was a bit sad to see this challenge come up, only because I had just recently given away a HUGE bag of blocks to a couple with a new baby, but we still have plenty of blocks to play with and we had a lot of fun doing it.
Charlotte started out building Lego towers, I made Jenga block towers and Daddy made a block tower destroyer with the battery-powered Lego train. Press the power button and it moves full steam ahead into a freshly built tower.
Guess who was called stingy when I suggested we try building with one color of block.
Lexi was not really into the building part of this challenge, but she did have a lot of fun knocking down towers and dumping out the blocks so she could sit in the drawer they're stored in.
Ever try to build a Lego tower with the Legos on their side?
Lexi likes using the clear blue Lego like binoculars
I built a microphone and that was officially the end of the block play. Charlotte flipped over the drawer and stood on top and gave us a good hour/hour and a half show. Songs sang included: The Lost Octopus, The Kitty Song, and The Horse Song
Later we went out to a park and when we came home Daddy put together another fort!
