When kids visit our Party Studio & Creativity Lounge they have a blast creating imaginative buildings and cities with a variety of blocks and building materials we keep in our cubbies. And we love that when it’s time to knock blocks down and rebuild, they make soft landings. Blocks made by Edushape, an award-winning company making creative, educational toys for children, are especially wonderful for imaginative designs, colors and textures. They are affordable, durable and kids love mixing and matching different varieties. Plus, they are widely available at local stores and online and make great gifts that moms will love, too. Here are three of our kid-tested favorites.
Wood Like Soft Blocks are lightweight and easy-to handle sizes. They come in fun shapes and even look like real wood. Kids develop creative thinking and basic building skills while creating imaginary buildings and towns with them.
These adorable, stylish Build-a-Drop foam droplets have printed surfaces and can be stacked and balanced in creative ways while enhancing eye-hand coordination and develop fine motor skills.
Textured Blocks have a distinctly textured front and back for youngsters’ fine motor skills development and adapts well for use with children with special needs. Make basic flat designs to trace or build more advanced 3D designs.
What will your child create? Snap some photos of their projects to use as unique greeting cards or social posts that will inspire others to think, create and build.
