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.
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.
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.
