You know I’m a snob for wood toys. And the Guidecraft Bead and Water Blocks didn’t let me down. They are keepers. These wooden blocks are open-ended and easily ushered us into the world of imagination.
Combining balance with beauty.
Entertaining simplicity and structure.
Fortitude and collaboration.
Modeling architecture that rivals Frank Lloyd Wright.
And I haven’t even shown you all of the educational things you can use these blocks for . . . but you would have to visit Mama Jenn for that . . . .
Or just try and win a set of both the Guidecraft bead AND water blocks over on Jolanthe’s blog, Homeschool Creations until 8pm tonight (July 25th!)!
But if you don’t win. . . you can buy them through Guidecraft for $32 each. The last I looked the Shimmer Water blocks were $24.97 plus free shipping on Amazon. I found the Crystal Bead Blocks for $26.88 from a toy store who used Amazon to fulfill their orders . . . which means free shipping for you!
(I was provided with Crystal Bead Blocks and Shimmering Water Blocks as part of my participation as a Guidecraft Mom. I wasn’t paid for this post nor was I bribed with a vanilla latte.)
