So...here is a little block puzzle I created for Roman a few weeks ago. I had the super smooth sanded blocks on hand (a big bag was given to me by a woodworker friend) and I knew I wanted to try making a little puzzle. It turned out really cute and was so relaxing to work on. As I worked one evening, Dustin commented that I seemed really calm as I painted. And after a day of hanging with kiddos, calm is what I was looking for. Yes indeed. It was relaxing and satisfying and now Romy gets to bonk himself with blocks ;-)
Hopefully there are more puzzles to come. I have a few littles in mind who are due for a gift.
