Using Education Cubes

photoblocks5

Photo blocks are so versatile! We’ve been using our set quite a bit lately. From the baby all the way to the big kids!

By adding printables from Education Cubes, we are able to use these blocks in so many different ways. I added pictures of the continents in the block. My daughter rolled the block and then had to name the continent and then color it on a map.

We used them in a color matching game which I blogged about earlier.

Our newest game we call “Feed the Cat.”  I made this cat out of a soup can and printed some cupcakes (big hint—check out Totally Tots on Wed. and you can make your own!) My preschooler would roll the cube and whatever number was on top, that was the number of cupcakes she had to feed the cat. Both my 4 yr. old and 2yr. old loved to feed the cat!

    IN LOVE with the sight word cards. Those would be a fun way to practice with my 4 year old.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    If we were to win, I'd choose to used the money cards first as that is what we're getting ready to learn in our homeschool!

    I liked you on facebook (Don't know why it took so long because I've followed you on twitter for awhile now).

    Love this idea! I would love to use the color cards and play the color matching game with my little one. But we could use these in SO many ways!

    I like the word families cards, the color cards, and any of the counting ones. I like your idea with the cupcakes and the kitty!

    This is an awesome giveaway! I would LOVE to be chosen. There are so many cube inserts that interest me, but I think I would probably choose the "Time" set to start with for my daughter. Thanks so much for including me in your drawing.

    I am going to use the Money set first with a group of preschoolers. The cube with have 4 pennies, 1 dime and 1 nickel on the 6 sides. The children will move that many spaces on a human gameboard. (Penny moves one space, nickel=5, dime=10).
