In today’s issue:
Kid’s Paper Building Blocks
You remember our first day, right? Geocaching and Lemon Volcanoes. Man was that fun. For me, my favorites have been those volcanoes and the Orange Julius. Those created some great memories as well as fun.
Today, we head back over to BabbleDabbleDo, our lemon volcano fun source, for these amazing building blocks. After that webinar last week about architects with Aurora, over at SuperCharged Science, I’ve been thinking, it’s just time to build something.
Ana, over at BabbleDabbleDo actually found this idea in a science book. These super sturdy triangles exhibit structural integrity and the strengths that engineers deal with everyday in building. While kids are used to working with traditional square or rectangular blocks, these blocks create new ways to understand how things are built and the strengths that are needed when building. While fun is on the front burner, we are sneaking in some learning and getting them ready for
The possibilities of different ways to use them are huge.
Get the full instructions HERE.
Here are the supplies that you will need:
- Thick colored paper (we purchased ours at IKEA but this fancy stuff would probably make awesome blocks)
- Paper cutter (optional)
- Exacto Knife, straightedge, cutting mat
And here’s the fun you can have.
I hope you enjoy today’s activity. Remember to share on our Facebook group page.
