Four Foam Block Building Ideas

I do my best to offer my children a variety of options to facilitate their play, for example, we have six different kinds of blocks, each with their own unique features. The latest addition to our collection was the foam block. While offering a variety of blocks has its benefits, using each kind of block in different ways offers additional advantages for building math and critical thinking skills.
