Free program to focus on importance of block play for kids

Wooden blocks

BlockFest, an award-winning early childhood math and science program, returns to Project Enlightenment this month.

I took my younger daughter to this a couple of years ago. Click here to read the post. We played with all sorts of blocks and I took home a lot of information about why block play is important for young kids. It's not just about stacking, at all.

BlockFest will be at Project Enlightenment near downtown Raleigh on Oct. 28 and Oct. 29. It's designed for kids ages 6 and under and their parents. Registration is required. (Also know that participants should wear socks as shoes are not allowed in the block area).

To register, go to Project Enlightenment's website. Project Enlightenment is the early childhood education and intervention program for Wake County schools.
