THE STORY:

We are fundraising both online and offline for sets of hollow blocks. In the mornings for the month of May the Brevoort kids have opened "The Co-op Store." They have decided on products to make; such as homemade pickles, cards and muffins. They are manning the table each morning and are so excited for their new blocks!

Our plan is to buy 2 sets of hollow blocks. We would like to have a communal block area as well as sets going into classroom dramatic play areas.

These blocks are amazing for open-ended play. Kids can create anything: towns, kitchens, rockets, trains, doctor's offices and on and on. They are wonderful for cooperative play, gross motor skills, hand eye coordination, visual perceptual skills, all of that. They can also be intergrated into the curriculum (for, let's say, a bridge study). Here's more information so you can get as excited as we are! 

Here's what they are:
