Creative Play with Your Building Bricks

    If you're a parent, you know that play is a cornerstone of development in our children's lives. It's how they learn and expand their skills. Give them the tools to create and play, and foster their imagination for a lifetime! In the spirit of this, I have to tell you about some AMAZING books Liam and I recently discovered!

Creative Play with Your Building Bricks

    Sofie and Nate have the coolest activity books to encourage your kids to create more with their building bricks. I instantly fell in love with that idea, because here's what happens in my house. Liam gets a set, we build it, and then in a few months, he takes it apart, and all the pieces go in a tote. Usually he loses the directions, and then just has loose bricks. Liam then struggles with what to build. Enter the activity books from Sofie and Nate. 

"Look mom! Stuff I can build by myself!"

    If you've ever gotten building brick kits, you know that some of those are very hard to build. Some kids with special needs and fine motor skill issues struggle to build such intricate designs. Which is another reason I love these activity books so much.

    Each page shows your child what bricks they need, the color, and how many of each piece. Right there teaches your child simple math and colors. Then it shows them step by step with pictures on where to place the bricks. The designs are simple, yet so much fun!

These books promote:

  • fine motor skills
  • problem solving
  • colors
  • shapes
  • counting
  • written numbers
  • following simple directions

PETS Creative Brick Building with Step-by-Step Ideas

    We got the PETS book yesterday and Liam couldn't wait to start building. He quickly set to work sorting all of his bricks. Sofie and Nate also have Farm Animals, Zoo Animals, and Fruits and Vegetables activity books. If you have a child that loves to pretend cook, then the fruit and veggie book would be perfect for them! 

Not Just for the Home

    These activity books would be an amazing addition to any home. But more than that, I think they'd also be a fantastic addition to schools, and therapy rooms. Occupational therapy was huge with my son when he was younger, and they used to do fun stuff like this with him. Sofie and Nate Activity Books will not only keeps kids and patients engaged, but happy and learning because they're having fun!

Don't just take our word for it, head to Sofie and Nate, and order some of their activity books. Your kids will thank you! (Think Easter basket fun for this Spring!)
