How to use Photo Stacking Blocks.?
- Photos of family members can help children feel at home in their daycare. Our daycares are often an extension of the home and children spend a great deal of time there. Having photos of familiar faces can help reassure new children especially.
- Having photos of children and adults at the daycare can help children learn names. Seeing themselves in a photo is always a delight and can help reinforce their important place in the daycare community.
- Alphabet or Numbers for older children to identify and use in games making them versatile for multiage centres who share resources.
- Adding seasonal objects such as count the pumpkins or spring bunnies allows you to add themes to your activities and centres.
- Traditional dice for game playing in a big soft and squishy format is appealing!
- Toys in your centre could be added: roll the toy and then go find it.
- Your children’s drawings can be displayed and changed up as new art is made.
- Movements such as touch your toes, do 5 star jumps, roll into a ball encourage gross motor skill development.
The joy of Photo Stacking Blocks is that you can put whatever you would like in them. Have fun playing!
