Lessons learned from blocks


  1. Play is serious work.
  2. Sometimes the things you make don't go the way you want them to. You can either a) smash the whole thing and have a hissy fit; b) smash the whole thing because that's fun; or c) adapt and make something a little bit different to what you had originally planned.
  3. Sometimes the round pegs fit in the square holes.
  4. If the arched blocks are hard to fit in the arched hole, you can always turn them on their head and put them through the square one.
  5. Sometimes playing with blocks one at a time is more fun than having a whole mountain of blocks in your lap.
  6. If your hands are full and you need to take the lid off, you can either a) put one of your things down; or b) ask for help.
  7. Emptying and repacking can be more fun than building.
  8. Shaped slots are both frustrating as all get-out and a barrel load of fun. 
  9. Try, try, try and try again.
