Need to get some pics of local buildings and architecture to laminate and put in the block area for kids to build instead of just building "houses & castles".

Awesome block center idea!

To expand upon this, the kids create a matching book with a picture of their structure (and their written description complete with labels,etc). You could also use a story telling app--creating a digital book to document and write about their work.
