Mustard and Teal 1.5 inch Geo Block Set

M.D. Handfield Designs Inc

 
SKU: 334-549

 

Geo-blocks are one of those awesome learning toys that grow with your child as your child gets older. 

• At the baby stage your child will start to use his/her gross motor skills and knock down any tower you build with them.

• At the toddler stage, your young one will start to build his/her own tower with the geo blocks.

• Preschoolers love to count everything and the Geo blocks can be used for counting. Count the number of blocks, count the sides on the blocks, count the triangles on the blocks, count the squares on the blocks and then see what different types of tower shapes you can make out of the blocks 

• During the kindergarten years, kids love to imitate what they see. If you make a couple of patterns out of geo blocks and then photograph them, your toddler can change the blocks around to match the pattern you made on the photograph (or if it is easier, we have a bonus sheet of different patterns your child can make with the blocks).

• Grade 1 math is all about patterning. Put the blocks in a line in various different ways. Start with a basic green, blue, wood repeating pattern and get your child to finish the pattern. Take out a block or two and get them to "fill in the blank". Your patterns can go as detailed as a single colour of triangle turning in a clockwise motion on each block. (bonus sheet also has pattern line ideas)

One Tree Planted is a 501c3 nonprofit that plants
trees around the world. Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time.
Every $1 donated helps plant 1 tree. It's that simple. They also aim to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.  They believe that businesses can be advocates for sustainability.

And so do we. As a business that relies on trees for its handcrafted goods, the least we can do is to ensure that we are using sustainable practices including making sure that the pine, aspen and maple we use are reforested for the next generations to enjoy. 

And as One Tree Planted so nicely puts it, 
By supporting tree-planting, businesses show that they are leaders in creating a healthier world in which humanity, nature, and wildlife can thrive. 

So why did we choose to go with a USA based tree planting charity instead of Canadian based? The answer is simple. This charity is able to plant 1 tree for $1 US dollar here in Canada. Canadian charities start at $3.99 per tree. Sure, it means that we cannot use anything we donate to the USA charity for tax break purposes - but that is not the point. We want to help replant what we use so that future generations can enjoy the trees too. With this charity along with your help, we can do more with less.

Most items are handcrafted for you when you order it. This time of year we do have some ready to stock items. Local pickup is available for last minute gifts.

Current creation times as of February 14, 2020:

most items: 3 - 7 business days depending upon items

custom name puzzles: 2-3 weeks
