What is a Block Party? A Block Party features wooden blocks of all different shapes and sizes that are geared for children’s play. The Block Party consists of people figures, vehicles, and animals that children will be able to incorporate into their play.
Block Parties will be hosted one Friday each month after Terrific Tots Program from 11:00am-12:00. Children will have the opportunity to engage in a fun, educational program while also interacting with their playmates.
The benefits of children’s block play: Children learn about their world through the skills of critical thinking and problem solving. They may also develop self-confidence. Play encourages language and literacy skills as well as creativity, and social and physical skills
