Race Tracks

Race1

Lately, Avery has been really into building race tracks.  It's useful to have more than one block set that she can use for building.  The more blocks, the longer the track and the more varied the terrain.  Whenever she builds a track, she always asks me to take a picture.  I love how she's proud of her work!  Also, by constructing race tracks again and again, she is working through different ideas, generating new designs and innovating.  She is learning that there are different ways to build something, which will help her become a flexible thinker and a creative problem solver in the future.  Block sets pictured are by Kid O, MillerGoodman and Land of Nod.
