Saturday Morning Fun
Jadon has been loving his "brick" building blocks that I picked up on clearance at Farm and Fleet after Christmas. We had them out for awhile right after Christmas but then I put them downstairs to go into rotation at a later date. This week when I rotated toys I found a home for them. I think they will be staying out for a little while. Two mornings in a row now he has spent a large amount of time stacking them, knocking them down, and then lining them up. Yesterday morning he worked hard on building a wall with them which he promptly knocked down after completion. That is the best part according to Jadon!!
This morning Daddy was home and got in on the fun!! Jadon had been using the yellow bricks to stack. At one point he had a stack that was almost taller than him! Daddy decided to see if they could build an arc that Jadon could go under!
As you can see by the look on Jadon's face in the picture below, Jadon was thrilled to have a building partner this morning!!
It took a little time and engineering but they finally figured out how to stack the blocks just right. Jadon squealed with delight as he ran under and loved it even more when the structure can tumbling down right behind him.
