Guidecraft Educator GIVEAWAY ~ Three Sets of Blocks

I am so excited to be hosting this awesome giveaway just in time for Christmas! This giveaway is for three different sets of beautifully-colored wooden blocks:

Sand Blocks (RV $32)     Rainbow Blocks (RV $25)     Crystal Bead Blocks (RV $32)
The blocks come in a variety of shapes and colors. They can be used together as they are all about the same size. We often divide toys into "girl toys" and "boy toys," but classic building blocks are perfect for boys and girls! Blocks are great for preschool classroom use and home use. Playing with these Guidecraft blocks allows your children to explore their creativity while working on critical fine motor skills. Children can create different patterns. They could collaborate to build a structure together or play independently. Block play also allows children to incorporate lots of other toys. Blocks can be a farm for small animal figures, a castle for princess dolls, or a fort for soldiers. Young children begin to understand cause and effect relationships as they build different structures and knock them down. All three sets of blocks are durable and can easily be stored in a large lidded container for easy clean up.

Lydia loves to build structures and knock them down!



Lydia built a house.
She added different people & animals.
She loved knocking that one down...
...and starting all over!
But Lydia's favorite thing to do is use the rainbow blocks
as colored glasses!


BUY IT! You can purchase your own set of Guidecraft Blocks for your home or classroom. Guidecraft also sells mirrored blocks and shimmering water blocks.

WIN IT! What's great about this Guidecraft Educator group is that each month, one of us will be hosting the giveaway of a product that we have all reviewed. I am hosting the giveaway this month. Just look at how you can quickly enter below!  (This contest is open to the US and Canada.)

    ReplyDelete
  32. These would be a wonderful addition to my family childcare program!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I teach Pre-K and have 22 students (4-5 year olds). I've wanted these blocks for a while now, but we have so many "required" materials that the budget doesn't cover that there is simply not enough funding for "extras". These would be such a wonderful addition to my class. I know the kids would really enjoy exploring with them!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would rotate these through the centers in my Head Start classroom. I think they would be amazing for teaching basic concepts like shapes and colors, but also for teaching about properties of matter for more advanced students. How neat to have blocks that are filled with different materials, to let the kids observe and experiement with how particles move. A great way to kick off a study of avalanches!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would give these to my son!

    ReplyDelete
  36. The Pre-K classroom that I did my student teach at had a small set of these. The children loved them and the teacher was able to incorporate them in to many activities.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would love to expand her inventory! She was such an inspiration to me.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would add these to my science center. What a great learning tool!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm a preschool director on a limited budget--64 of my closest friends would love to play with these blocks!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would give these to my 2.5 year old daughter. They would go great with our unit blocks, and I'm sure our next baby (due in a few weeks) will get many years of enjoyment out of them as well.
