Some years ago I figured out that if you want kids to enjoy playing with blocks, you've got to make it easy to put away the blocks when it's time to clean up.
So I ordered some milk crates from Duluth Trading Company so kids could quickly put them in any which way at clean up time. That's usually what happens. It's how I do it.
But this year's kindergarten class is taking a strong interest in cleaning up with care. When washing their dishes they take plenty of time to get the plates really clean.
When it's time to clean up the blocks, well, they do it more carefully than me.
