My kids and I went to a science center in Wichita, and their favorite area was the keva planks area. They are just plain planks... roughly 3 or 4 inches long, two inches wide, and thin....
They LOVED the intense towers that people created out of these. Towers big enough to have to climb tall ladders to finish. They enjoyed building with them and learning how to make sound structures.
Well, when we came home the kids were still talking about them and trying to make similar towers out of the baby's blocks... yeah... didn't work quite so well.. LOL!
I'm looking for them for Christmas presents... yes, I know the joke about the whole, "You might be a homeschooler if all of your Christmas presents are educational." LOL!
Do any of you have these or something similar (also a brand similar called CitiBloks) ????
