Quick Tip: Logos in the Block Center
One way to add literacy to the blocks center and to encourage different kinds of play is to add logos to the blocks center.
For this particular activity, we found logos of (familiar) grocery stores and restaurants online. We printed the logos and glued them to index cards. Then we taped the cards to blocks. Kids could use these as signs on buildings and so forth.
Cut logos from bags, boxes, or packages. If you use food labels, kids can create billboards along their block roads.
This idea is a great way to bring in environmental print for kids - use print that they will recognize and can "read."
And, as you can see from the photo, just stacking the logos is fun, too!
