Revamp your building bloks

Age: Mega Bloks are suitable from 12 months plus, Duplo from 18 months

Time: 5 minutes to prepare, then hopefully your child will enjoy them during many play sessions

Equipment: some small stickers

Development: using building blocks helps your child develop fine motor skills and imaginative play , express their creativity,  and helps them learn to  concentrate on a specific task.  If they’ve become a bit bored of their blocks, this might get them interested again.

Simply put  small stickers on some of your child’s building blocks.  You can either do this together as a little art project, or do it for your child as a surprise.

I chose In the night garden stickers, but you can go with whatever your child is currently interested in or what they tend to build and imagine with the blocks.

For example, if your child plays at farms you may be able to get little animal or vegetable stickers.
