Wooden Blocks are for One-of-a-Kind People
Pick up a few blocks from your Uncle Goose set. Look at them closely.
And we mean really closely! Go beyond the paint. Examine the wood grain on two different blocks.
No two block sets are exactly alike. This makes your block set one-of-a-kind.
You’ll see different wood grain from block to block. You might see varying gradations in wood color. You might feel a pinhole on one block, while another might have a unique mineral streak.
These differences from block to block reveal the beautiful and unique nature of wood. Unlike plastic blocks, no two Uncle Goose block sets will be exactly alike. Ever.
This means your wooden block set is 100% one-of-a kind. There’s not another block set exactly set like it in the entire world.
Let’s celebrate our differences, shall we? Uncle Goose wooden block sets provides you with a wonderful way to talk with children about beauty of individual differences.
Blocks can also serve as a springboard for conversations about nature and society. Consider asking children some thought-provoking questions:
- How is wood different from plastic?
- Why does a wood block have grain on it, when plastic toys don’t?
- What makes one wood block different from another?
- Is it OK to be different?
- Why is there so much plastic in our home?
- Can we count all the wood and plastic things in this room?
What other questions can you think to ask?
Children are curious about their world. Playing with wood blocks can inform us about so much more than building, spelling, stacking, and sorting.
The unique, natural character of wood blocks can aid thought-provoking conversations about values. Why not use wood blocks to engage in a meaningful discussion about nature and society today?
