Keeping Busy

This week our children and families should be back at school but unfortunately our teachers are out on the picket line.  Our government and teachers haven’t been able to negotiate a contract so school is on hold till it can happen.

But I’ve been keeping busy with a few projects.
                                       Snap Blocks
A fellow StrongStart facilitator, Pamela, posted this link on her Facebook page saying that she wanted these.  I thought we could make them ourselves.
So I did a bit of comparative shopping and found the best price, locally, for snaps at Fabricland.  I had extra blocks at school to use which meant we were ready to create.

Pamela and I got together, drilled holes (love using electric tools) and screwed on
                                   the snap pieces.
                                        So easy.
When I was writing this post I googled Snap Blocks and found a site that made their own too, I Can Teach My Child.  I like that she attached snaps to a big piece of wood for a foundation.  I think it’s a great idea and will plan to make one too.
      Can’t wait to be back at school so the children can try them.


  1. It's good that you still found ways to work on great ideas even when school is off. Those snap blocks look great and for sure, it can be used to make kids more excited in going back to school.

    1. Thanks Mirtha, I'm excited to see how they interact with the blocks.
