Hide and Seek of the Week

This week's collections object is a set of French Alphabet blocks!

This set of 32 basswood embossed blocks were produced by Uncle Goose Toys. Not only do these blocks help little ones learn their ABC's and 123's, the also introduce them to the French language. Each block features a beautifully illustrated picture of an animal, with the French name written below.

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don't forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and including your child in the conversation. For example: What do you like to build with blocks? What’s your favorite letter of the alphabet? What other letters to you see around the museum?

And of course, Happy Memorial Day everyone!
