Block Parties

The Purdue Extension Office of Huntington County invites you and your children to a Block Party ! Your child can:

· Gain basic education skill in math, reading, science and more.

· Positively interact with peers and adults as they are prepared for future school settings.

· Have fun with blocks! 

New studies have shown the benefits of open-ended play time. Blocks parties offer time for children to engage open-ended play and socialize with peer their age. For more information the recent research at Purdue can be found here.
