Black and White Geo Block Set

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

 

Why this set is so awesome!
Lovingly handcrafted two tone wooden blocks are one of those special grow-with-me type wooden toys that can be used by children as young as 2 years old through to their early grade school years.

  • Around age 9 months - 18months, children will start to use gross motor skills and knock down block towers.
  • Around age 18 months - 2 years, children will start to use gross motor skills to build their own block towers
  • Around age 2.5 years through 3 years children will start to count the blocks
  • Around age 3 years children will start to imitate patterns they see. They can arrange the blocks to match a photo or drawing of the blocks arranged in a certain way. This stage will go on for the next few years.
  • Around age 4-6 children will start learning about patterns and pattern sequencing. Arranging these blocks in linear patterns will help develop pattern recognition
  • Around age 5-6 children start learning the basics of adding and subtracting. These blocks can help children visually see the difference of basic adding and subtracting when used as visuals to explain simple math.

Our Materials and Process

Wooden blocks are cut by table saw in our workshop and sanded twice, once by belt sander and once by hand. Corners and edges are slightly rounded to make sure they are not sharp. Surfaces are sanded smooth. 

Once the woodwork is done, blocks are painted by hand using brush and certified non-toxic water based paints. When the paint is dry, a couple coats of certified non toxic water resistant gloss are applied to ensure the paint is protected and the blocks can be easily cleaned.
