All three of my children were playing with blocks this afternoon and it was funny to see their personalities in their building styles.
When Maeve plays with blocks, she builds cities, houses, and animals to live in the houses. She wants to use all of the blocks and needs her village to be perfect.
Finnegan doesn't build anything that has a purpose. He puts blocks together in a numerical pattern and fills them in according to how many empty pegs are on each block.
Oren creates animals. He was very proud of his mama T-Rex and his baby T-Rex. Everything he does always has a mama and a baby. Every now and again, he'll throw in a daddy for good measure. Oren loves to build and puts blocks together in a certain order.
