Building Play

M has really been inspired with our set of Magna-Tiles. For the first month or so, she would usually just build little houses or tunnels with them. Yesterday, while I was busy caring for the sick toddler (and before she got sick herself), she started experimenting some more, first making an igloo and a big cylinder, and then making a 6-point star and a butterfly. These tiles are so fun to play with!

The Magna-Tiles website has suggestions for extension activities, so I think we will be trying those out soon.

And I’ve just discovered another magnet-block building set, made with wood, not plastic! These Tegu blocks might end up on next years’ Solstice list.

  • LipperLoppy? what???

    “LipperLoppy” is a word that my daughters invented. It is usually used as a silly adjective or noun. It's a frequent family joke and a good representation of our family's crazy joyful life.
