These dinosaurs will inspire some creative play for a dinosaur theme!
Construction & Role Play
It’s important to have tools and construction gear in the blocks center so students can pretend to be a builder or an engineer and explore various STEM, science, and math concepts and tools!
As we all know, it takes the right tools to get the job done. Adding these to the blocks center gives students even more opportunity for imaginative play.
Another inspirational tool to add to the blocks center. The tape itself is soft and flexible which makes it safe for little learners to use.
Building requires a hard hat! Keep this costume in the blocks center so little learners can pretend to be construction workers while they build.
