ONCE UPON A TIME...!Young children love story time! Fairy tales are some of their favorites. Here's a fun way to make story time different and exciting. Gather the little ones around in a circle on the floor. Dump out a big set of wooden blocks and as you begin the tale, let them build the elements of the story. Playing with toy blocks is a great way to build social skills. You'll find they love to work together while building their favorite character or a setting for the story. Make sure and encourage their creativity! You may find that they may begin to add their own ideas to an old favorite tale. You know Aesop isn't the only one who can spin a good yarn!, Challenge them to make up their own ending to a fable. Let them change a character, for example how would the story be different if Goldilocks met the 3 elephants instead of the 3 bears? Can an elephant huff and puff, could an elephant go down the chimney? Soon you'll find that they will be engaged in fun and healthy creative play! All with a set of wooden blocks!

classic toys build a classic tale from wooden blocks Copyright: tigatelu / 123RF Stock Photo

A fairy tale is defined as a children's story about magical and imaginary beings and lands, where improbable events lead to a happy ending. Fairy tales often involve elves, hobgoblins, dragons, fairies and other magical creatures. One fun, magic filled story kids love, is Jack and the Beanstalk. A classic fairy tale with magic, imaginary beings, improbable events and of course a happy ending (well for Jack, maybe not so happy for the giant!)Kids love to read these well known stories.They delight in a parent's grumbly voice repeating an ogreish Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum". It's even more exciting to act out a favorite well loved story. Let them dress up and pretend to be Jack or better yet a big, mean giant who's trying to eat you. Here's another idea for creative activity for the little ones. "Build" a story using wooden blocks. Illustrate in 3D your family's own version of Jack and the Beanstalk using a wooden block set. Build the beanstalk, a giant's castle, golden egg laying hen, harp and of course the giant himself all from some simple wooden blocks. Blocks are a creative, natural and educational toy that provide hours of fun for kids! Build with blocks today and let these classic toys tell a classic tale!
