Barrington Area Library, 505 N. Northwest Highway, Barrington, IL 60010
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 kids can discover the fun and excitement of building with Froebel blocks at the Barrington Area Library in a workshop presented by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust. The workshop is designed for children in grades 2-4.
Pre-registration is required and begins June 1st. Register through the library’s web calendar.
