Block Party at the Library!

The Library was selected for an exciting new program called the Block Party Project!

When children play with blocks they are learning math, engineering, social skills and so much more! Through play, your child is discovering shapes, learning how blocks can be balanced, observing how they fall and discovering what fits together. Hard to believe, but these playful explorations are the foundation of later mathematical and scientific thinking - plus it's fun!

The Block Party is a workshop format to engage parents in block play with their children. Children are born learners, but they need experiences to be stimulating, fun, and interactive. Parents can guide children’s early learning experiences and use blocks as the tools to support their development. Playing with blocks can provide experiences where children learn math and science, new words and pre-reading skills, social skills, creativity, physical skills, and problem-solving skills. Block play is fun for both children and adults.

Learn more about the benefits of block play in this article from the National Association for the Education of Young Children or call Miss Rachee at 610-623-0239 ext 304.
