Basehor-Linwood Parents as Teachers BLOCKFest
Children from 8 months to 8 years old and their parents participated in a BLOCKFest program provided by Basehor-Linwood Parents as Teachers on Monday, March 12, at Basehor Elementary School. Kids rotated through stations containing different kinds of blocks to play with. The program is intended to help children develop math and science skills.
Children from 8 months to 8 years old built — and, more often than not, knocked down — walls, towers and other structures with a variety of different blocks during a Basehor-Linwood Parents as Teachers BLOCKFest session Monday night at Basehor Elementary School.
Parents as Teachers offered three free BLOCKFest programs Monday night and Tuesday morning, intended to help children build math and science skills through block play.
A photo gallery from the 7:15-8:15 p.m. Monday session is available at left.
