Fill in the Space with Blocks Activity

It has been a challenge to come up with new activities for BB for home schooling.  We have been doing a maths and phonics session each morning.  For this particular day I went with a fill in the space with blocks activity.  It is a stem activity to help children with problem solving and spatial awareness.

Make sure you follow my maths board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To do your own fill in the space with blocks activity you will need:

  • Tape
  • Wooden blocks

This fill in the space with blocks activity was very simply to set up.  It took me maybe 10 minutes to while my charges were getting up.

You could either just make a big square and see how many blocks they can get into it, without leaving any gaps.  Or you could do what I did, which is to make a shape using the blocks and go around the outside with tape.  I then put the blocks for each puzzle into a pile next to the tape outline.

This was BB’s favourite activity of the morning.  He went straight to it in our home schooling session.  He could independently do them, except the ones with the triangles, he needed a little help to figure that one out.

If you enjoyed this fill in the space with blocks activity, then be sure to check out my helping with adding activity and exploring patterns with mirrors.

Fill in the space with blocks activity is a fun and simple STEM game for children to develop their spatial awareness and problem solving.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
