Froebel blocks were developed in the 1830s by Friedrich Froebel, the father of kindergarten, who believed that children learn through play. His series of smooth wooden blocks present geometric shapes and patterns in increasing complexity. Frank Lloyd Wright, who played with the blocks extensively as a child, credited them with inspiring his innovative Prairie style.
Now your children can discover the fun and excitement of building with Froebel blocks at the Cary Area Public Library in a workshop presented by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust.
The workshop is designed for children ages 8 and up.
Registration begins on February 16. Register by calling 847.639.4210, by going to the library’s website: http://www.carylibrary.info , or in person at the library.
