This has been a very fun project, but, a very, very long one (and I’m probably not even done yet). Blocks are so easy to make, and there are so many inspiring sets out there (I fell in love with the sets by Grimm’s Spiel & Holz Design and Ostheimer/Kinderkram, in particular). So, an inexpensive plank of 2×6 SPF, a lot of painting, sanding, and finishing, and poof. Blocks!
And more blocks.
And more blocks!
And what do you know? MORE blocks!
And now we have a set so large that they live in a big pillowcase, and our 3yo has to ask for help if she wants to drag them out. But, they’re fun- and they get used almost every day in some sort of play. I have a few more additions planned- but, I’ll stop eventually. 🙂
