Over the last couple of days it’s been all about duplo in our house. After breakfast every morning, Sprout goes straight to her bucket of bricks, tips them out and starts to build. I decided to make her a duplo puzzle as a new challenge.
On a large baseboard I laid out the bricks in different coloured lines, then I took some bricks away and put these “puzzle pieces” in a basket. After breakfast I popped them both on the kitchen table and she soon got stuck in.
I started by suggesting that each line was a different colour but soon left her to do her own thing because she was totally absorbed by covering the whole baseboard.
She asked for another basket full of bricks and moved a few bricks around to different positions. Watch this space for more duplo activities!
