Celebrating 70 years
of block play

Block play in Liverpool

A block play revolution has taken hold in Liverpool, drawing in dozens of settings and benefiting thousands of children.  In order to encourage language development and creativity, the Liverpool Council set out to inspire practitioners about the value of block play. Block play training sessions were organised and Community Playthings blocks given to each setting.  All of the participants have been amazed by the impact this simple, yet powerful, resource has had on their children.

Next year is 70 years since Community Playthings made our first Unit block; here is a celebration of block play in Liverpool.
