Play is okay! tip
Use lacing blocks as a unit of measurement by lining them up beside whatever item or area you’re measuring. Pose challenges like, “How many blocks long is this rug?” Encourage your child to make predictions as she measures. “How many blocks will it take to stretch all the way from one side of the kitchen table to the other?” “Will it take more blocks to measure the length of your dump truck or the length of our pet cat?” Gather larger blocks and invite family members to lie flat on the floor to be measured, too!
