Soft bricks

I recently was in a cheap shop and saw these sponges.

So I quickly got some for the children together with some kitchen tongs.

When we was home I quickly cut up the sponges into strips and placed them in a tub with the tongs.

I then asked Izlles to build a tower with them using the tongs and not his fingers.

Izlles found this rather challenging, but soon got the hang of it.

He loved trying to build the tower as high as he can without it falling.

Posy also enjoyed this activity, but for Puppy I just asked her to use her fingers and not the tongs unless she wanted to.

This is a great quiet time activity which kept my children occupied for a long time.

Izlles age 6
Posy age 4
Puppy age 2.5
Jakey age 10 months

Please excuse my spelling but I have dyslexia and do my best. Please don’t hesitate to correct me.
Thank you.
