Add some creative decorations too. This project was made from our "Crazy Constructor" 120 piece wooden block set. It uses 61 blocks and is easy for kids to build. Even the adults will like creating this bird!

If you want a project that's a little more challenging try building the Mayflower. This project uses our "Castle Creator"118 piece set. There are a lot of fun shaped blocks in this set for tons of creativity. It's one of our most popular block sets. Building this version of the Mayflower could be a fun project for kids to build with an older sibling or cousin or even grandpa too.

If everyone is having lots of fun building, don't stop at these two projects. Let the kids (or adults) create more.Here's  a simple block building game you could play as a family.

BLOCK BUILDING CHARADES

Write down 10 Thanksgiving items on smalll pieces of paper. Divide into 2 teams. Then have someone from one team choose a paper. They have to build that item written on their paper out of blocks within a certain time limit. They try to get their team to guess correctly what they are building. 

You could also do this by having the person who is building choose something they are grateful for, and then try to build that and make their team guess. 

Be creative, find creative ways to be spend time as a family this holiday season.

Wooden blocks aren't just for kindergarteners. They can be a fun way to play together as a family!

Back To Blocks is so grateful for the opportunity we have to meet so many wonderful people from around the world. We hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
