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.
