    Block Center Tips: the block center don't always have to be noisy. At evening play you can always pull out some sponge blocks. Which are very easy to make♥

    Crafts "Extra Activity" if kids get done early Quieter version of wooden blocks with nice colours and many different shapes! I like this idea because you can cut the sponges into whichever shapes you want to make the "blocks" diverse. It's a very open ended activity with many possibilities to create different constructions. Also can be a great material for water tables!
