Construction area display -Mudpies and Marmalade- an Early Years Journey. ≈≈

Idea to inspire block play in the Nido Construction area display -Mudpies and Marmalade- an Early Years Journey.

use photos of the actual children in the classroom attached to wooden blocks.  These blocks can be used by the children to play, pretend, and develop language skills throughout their learning centers.  These ‘block people’ give the children relative people to play with rather than plastic, painted figures that could be store bought.

Wooden blocks come alive with faces of Day Nursery children

Block Area - Here it is again.block "people" made using photographs of current children. So cool! I need to get on this!
