What’s a Block Party?

Glad you asked! A Block Party is a fun interactive way for families to learn and play together. We will have different stations of blocks (from GIANT waffle blocks, to magnetic blocks, to classic wooden blocks and more) set up for you all to explore together. Each station provides children the opportunity to enhance different skills.

 Why Blocks?

Researchers have found that children develop a variety of skills through block play, including: math, physics, early engineering, creativity, social skills, physical skills, and more!
