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 family can discover the fun and excitement of building with Froebel blocks at the Eisenhower Public Library in a workshop presented by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. The workshop is designed for children ages 6 and up. (6 and 7 year olds must be accompanied by an adult).
Registration begins on April 14. Priority will be given to Harwood Heights and Norridge residents. Register by calling 708.867.2298, by going to the library’s website: eisenhowerlibrary.org, or in person at the library.
