We Play: Blocks!

E loves to play with two things: blocks and her little animal figurines.  She loves stacking and lining up all the blocks, and then putting her little animals in just the right places.  She lines everything up and puts all the "baby" animals with their "mamas."  I recently came across a set of cardboard bricks - the same kind I had when I was growing up - at a garage sale.  E has been building and building with them.  I love how big they are, we can build animal apartments, walls, and towers.  I remember building the walls to houses with them when I was little.  The possibilities are endless!

These pictures remind me so much of my brother, sister, and myself when we were kids!

MamaJ, I know you can order them online - they have them at Oriental Trading Company, and I think also at Melissa and Doug. You can't beat garage sale prices, though!!
