?We will have several stations of blocks set up?large cardboard brick blocks, large foam blocks, large wooden blocks, small pattern blocks, small column blocks, etc.,? Soo Hoo said. ?You and your family will rotate through the block stations with other families during the first hour of play.

?During the last 30 minutes you will have the opportunity to return to the blocks that your children enjoyed most. It is a great play experience for the whole family, while also reinforcing foundational math and science skills.?
