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!

Imaginative toys such as wooden blocks are dream makers!
