This spring my husband introduced my kids to the fun of toppling dominoes. As expected my hands-on, spatial thinker really took to the activity. He spent hours setting up rows of dominoes.
He learned to arrange the dominoes into shapes, create bridges, and designed curves.
This is my LEGOs, Lincoln Logs, and Tinker Toys lovin' boy, so I'm not surprised that he enjoyed designing patterns with the dominoes.
When Ben (7 yrs) placed the last domino he called us all in to watch them fall over. This spring he spent a lot of rainy days lining up dominoes and toppling dominoes over and over.
I loved seeing that excited face every time he knocked the dominoes over. I also enjoyed watching him problem solve how to arrange the pieces so they fell correctly. I highly recommend toppling dominoes for an activity when it's too hot or cold to play outside!
Do you topple dominoes?
