Here my daughter is playing with blocks. Emma can play this game for hours. There are many simple and diverse games to play which are good for early development such as: In and Out, (placing the block in and out of the bucket) Find the letters and identify them, What color is it, Find the numbers and count them, Stack'em, and best of all is Watching them fall. Besides the developmental benefits the personal perk for me is I have her play this game while I make dinner. I prefer to make dinner with two hands and not four.
