Build character with Character Building Blocks.
If you want your children to become good people, then surround them with the vocabulary of virtues so they can recognize goodness when they find it. Without the right words, “good” is just a wishy-washy feeling. With the right words, “good” is responsible, kind, patient, creative, friendly, helpful, eager and so much more. Children can understand and recognize these qualities as easily as their ABCs. Even more important, they can come to LOVE these qualities just as much as you do.
Start young. Start with Character Building Blocks. For our Deluxe 145-piece set, click here.
This set of Character Building Blocks does just that – builds character by exposing children to the names of 64 different virtues – or character strengths – that they carry within themselves. Teaching children the vocabulary of virtues at a young age empowers their emotional intelligence by giving them the words they need to identify their feelings. Being able to name virtues and the feelings that are associated with them helps children learn to express their feelings in healthy and appropriate ways.
Plus, they are a lot of fun.
Set includes twenty-four 3cm (1.2″) natural wooden blocks with 6 sides each. This gives us 144 faces, and 144 educational opportunities. In addition to 64 different virtues (some repeated more than once), there are some special blocks and some special sub-sets of blocks that increase the set’s versatility.
One block has the numbers 1 through 6 on the faces, so you can use it as a game die.
In addition to the 1-6 block, you will find additional blocks with the numbers 1-9 along with +, – and = signs for simple math games.
One block has the symbols for Head, Hand, Heart and Will that are the suits on our unique Quintessence Card Deck, allowing you to use them together in creative ways. For example, you can roll to choose the trump suit in a game.
Six blocks can be combined in different ways as a heart puzzle to say “I love my… Family, Friends or Life”
Four blocks form a puzzle that includes 5,6,7,8 & 9-pointed stars.
There is a sun, a moon, a peace dove, a peace symbol, a book, a present and more, all designed to spark your child’s imagination.
Of course, in addition to talking with your child about all of the interesting words and pictures on these blocks, you can also just stack them up, knock them down, count them, spell words and sentences with them, sort them by color, put them in alphabetical order, and build castles out of them. They are 3 cm cubes, which is a standard small ABC block size, so you can combine them with other block sets for larger building projects.
The set includes a custom-printed drawstring cotton bag to store the blocks in.
There are a lot of ABC blocks available, but none of the rest are CHARACTER Building Blocks. The difference is an investment in building your children’s future.
