Construct Newspaper Building Blocks
Children love to build things they can play in—old boxes, blankets and furniture, or wooden blocks can all be the building materials for your child's dream home, vehicle, or fortress. Here's an activity that has your child craft his own set of building blocks to create bigger-than-life constructs. All you need to do is roll newspapers into logs, and your child will have inexpensive blocks to keep him engaged and entertained for hours. With these blocks, your child will be exercising his imagination and experimenting with balance, cause and effect, structure strength, angles, curves and shapes.
