Block Play: Wrap it up!

My wonderful intern, Katie, created the best little activity during centers last week.  She pulled out the blocks, a couple rolls of wrapping paper, scissors and tape.  Bam!  A great center for fine motor skills!  How many of you are wrapping present challenged?  It takes something to wrap a present.  The children put their “pretend” presents under our tree.  So cool.

    I love this idea. Very creative. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Nothing is better than having a ton of hugs from your kids and a Starbucks!! What a lucky mom to have such a loving daughter.

    Great idea for the block center or art center:)

  5. I threw a Christmas party for my Play2Learn ( group) and we did this as an activity, it was a HUGE hit with the kids. We used empty boxes, but blocks would have been a lot of fun too!

  6. Isn’t it amazing how engaging “wrapping” a block can be? The boys loved it as much as the girls. Fun stuff and excellent fine motor practice!
