Our wooden blocks come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used for the processes of construction where children have opportunities to measure, build, stack, shape, classify, balance and categorise. The new wooden connector blocks are sturdy and inviting and are resources to support children to develop a range of skills and processes. Blocks give children opportunities to focus, persevere, experiment, hypothesise, concentrate, practice eye-hand coordination and experience the pleasure of achievement. Blocks can offer children with possibilities to develop team working skills where they learn to give and take. Children may also experience frustration, anger and conflict with blocks. These are not emotions to avoid but rather to experience and develop appropriate problem-solving skills to resolve them.
Our wooden block sets are made from solid pine and plywood, which is smoothly sanded and oiled.
