  • Glue the strips of material to the blocks on each side and set aside to dry. Make sure you use different textures on the sides since this will help your child understand the feel of different materials.

Besides being perfect for sensorial exploration, these blocks help with brain development, fine tune their motor skills and enhance creative thinking.
