Woodworking Dads: Are you the one who plays blocks with your children?
This is one of those interesting times where I can connect my personal interests and professional career as a marketing strategist. Plus if you contribute, there’s something in it for you!
Perhaps this is a loaded question considering the forum, but I’m interested in hearing about your experiences in playing blocks (Lego, Duplo, MegaBloks, wooden, etc.) with your kids, particularly between the ages of 1-5 yrs. I’m looking to answer questions like:
- Do you see this as an activity that Dad does, versus Mom?
- Do you influence the purchase of these types of toys?
- Describe your experiences with block play time with your kids.
- What benefits do you see from this type of play activity?
Any story, perspective or thoughts on this would not only be appreciated, but it will also put you in a random drawing for a $25 gift card to Target. So I’m looking for any thoughtful contributions below in the comments section by Friday @ 5:00pm to be eligible. I’ll announce the winner in a follow-up post later next week. Any feedback will remain anonymous outside of this forum. Thanks!
