Anna got an awesome early birthday present from my work buddy Priya. It was Melissa and Doug Magnetic Pattern Blocks that I was eyeing myself for quite some time. Anna was very excited about it. The set comes with 12 patterns, and there are more online. A couple of good sites for patterns are:
- Prekinders (found from MamaSmiles) and
- Kelly’s Kindergarten (found from Monkey See Monkey Do).
- After trying a few patterns, Anna chose “A Superman” for completion. Don’t ask me how she even knows who Superman is. It looks sometimes that cultural references are absorbed out of thin air. Of course, she knows of one cute Superman on Adventures in Mommydom, but he doesn’t really look like this picture :)
- I hope that playing with Pattern Blocks will become standard in the house. If not Anna, then I will be playing with them!
