We are a building family. All kinds of toys – a million pieces – most too small for Caleb to play with. You know what that means? That means that I am typically convulsing and in a panic whenever my little boy enters the room.
WHAT DOES HE HAVE IN HIS MOUTH!? CHECK HIM!!!
Since Caleb started crawling, the Sweeney family instated a new rule. Building only happens on the kitchen table. No more fun in the living room and definitely no more fun on the floor. NO WAY!
But what about my little man? He wants to build too, right? We found something that is PERFECT for his little fingers and his BIG mouth. 🙂 Mega Bloks First Builders. There are so many sets to choose from … the fun will never end. We started with the Mega Bloks First Builders Safari (Tub) because I knew it was something that would grow with him as he aged.
But honestly… I only give him three or four pieces at a time. Otherwise, he is just dumping this bucket all over the floor. AND GUESS WHO HAS TO CLEAN IT UP? ME!!! (as if I had to answer that)
Anyway, if you have little kids who constantly watch big kids build and are looking to build on their own… here’s your solution.
