Looking for wooden blocks this Christmas? 3 reasons why you should buy a large wooden block set
Here’s a great gift to put under your family Christmas tree! Wrap a large set of wooden blocks. They may not be flashy or high-tech, but the blocks will provide hours and even years of good, natural educational play for your child. In generations past, wooden blocks were a traditional Christmas gift for children.
3 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD BUY A GREAT SET OF WOODEN BLOCKS
# 1-More blocks, more creativity!
There’s nothing worse than not having the pieces to finish the great idea you started building. Burnout can be a real creativity killer. Not having enough pieces causes children to lose interest in playing with a great creative toy like wooden blocks. But having a large number of different sizes and shapes attracts children to the task. Children will tend to play a large block game much more than a small game. Give them the tools they need to be creative, give them lots of blocks.
# 2-More blocks, cheaper!
Larger wood block sets are usually the best value. Not only is the price per piece lower in large sets, but there are more bigger blocks and more shapes, so the value is even higher. Therefore, buying 2 sets of smaller blocks does not equal one large set. The larger game not only has more blocks, but it generally has more larger blocks and more shapes. This is a toy that will last for many years. They are a great lasting value!
# 3-More blocks, to use as they grow!
Certainly a 2 or 3 year old does not need 200 blocks and may even feel overwhelmed by too many. However, they will want more blocks and more shapes as they grow. A 5-year-old will want a lot to build an entire city and share with siblings and friends. Playing together and cooperating in building a great project is an activity that school-age children love.
One suggestion is to buy a large set, but then only give a younger child a portion of the blocks while they are young. A 2 or 3 year old will play with maybe 30-50 which are mostly squares and rectangles. But as they are 4 years old or older, they like the 100 blocks and will start to use triangles, wedges and arches, etc.
Blocks can be a real social toy that kids love to share! So have a lot for all friends to play together!
So if you are considering a wooden block game for your family. Pick a great game for many years of family fun.
