Fun With Blocks

Yesterday, I had to get out of the apartment. While some people are real homebodies and could stay inside for days at a time, I am just not one of those people. Faith seemed like she too needed to get out and told me she wanted to go shopping. I thought it was a great idea but as soon as I mentioned getting her dressed, she decided she no longer wanted to go out since it involved getting out of her comfy pajamas. So, I ended up going solo which was probably better anyway since the weather was not all that great.

While shopping at Target, I found some really cool "Little People" Alphabet blocks. Faith loves playing with blocks and these were big and looked like they would be easy for her to take apart. An added bonus was that they had the letters of the alphabet on them and they came in a variety of bright colors!

Today, Faith didn't have school so we got out the blocks. One of our favorite things to do with blocks is to see how high of a tower we can build. We got all the way up to the letter 'U' before our tower came tumbling down. After that though, we didn't get very far as Faith started knocking them down on purpose. We had blocks everywhere but she was very good about helping me put them all away in the little plastic bag that in which they came!

One of our high towers. See that little hand in there, getting ready to knock 'em down!

  1. What a great blog and great blog post! I am an educational school psychologist and love how you are playing with the letter blocks. You have them grouped by colors, different heights, and you are playing my kids' favorite game: the building-knock down game!

    It sounds like you're doing great stuff with Faith and I look forward to reading more.

    I blog about educational/parenting issues ( and if you visit and like the blog, please feel free to suggest a topic for me to blog about.

    In the meantime, good luck and enjoy Faith and her blocks!


  2. I absolutely love the pictures, she is truly adorable. So glad I came across this blog, you have great information and share some really nice things.
