What would you say is the most popular toy in your house? For some time now, for Jack at least, it has been blocks….and cups…and anything else that can be stacked.

I love blocks. They are so simple but they beckon you forth to play and build. From nothing you can build anything. The perfect open-ended toy.

  1. Oh my! I love that projector! What a fantastic idea. I bet he loves it.

    1. Isn’t it wonderful? I picked it up for free from Freecycle. It is such fun to play with.

  2. Beautiful documentation! Love how you captured his interests in building and turning it into a story. My son is also into building now….:-) Where can I find the colourful clear cups?

    1. Thank you 🙂 the coloured cups are simply plastic shot cups I picked up from party aisle of the supermarket. They were just a few dollars for a packet of 20.
