The Collaborative Summer Reading Program’s theme for 2017 is Build a Better World. One of the suggestions was to hold a multigenerational program to build community. I chose to hold a “block party” where we could literally build with blocks, while we also build community.
I had originally asked a local retirement village to join us for our event, but when I called to confirm a week before, they decided not to attend. Our director is a member of the local Rotary Club chapter, and three of their members answered the call to attend.
I placed different types of blocks that were all safe for the youngest of kiddos on the floor. Blocks with smaller pieces were on the tables for kids 3+.
