cardboard building blocks
Every week at my daughter’s violin lesson, my kids would head straight for the cardboard brick building blocks and play quietly for a solid 30 minutes. That was enough for me to send them as a Christmas gift idea to my mother-in-law, who thankfully heeded my request and sent them our way.

These cardboard brick building blocks by Melissa & Doug are now a
house favorite, with my kids using them to build castles, houses, and
yes, even a makeshift Angry Birds game. Keep in mind that they do take a
bit of time to assemble, mamas, and if you live in a small space, well,
you might be using them to create extra seating. But as luck would have
it, they have the same mesmerizing effect in our house as they did at
my daughter’s music school. So worth it!  -Kristen
