KORXX blocks are amazing! They are made from responsibly harvested, high quality cork. Cork is a natural material, free from harmful chemicals.  These blocks are soft and quiet which means no loud banging noises and no dings or dents on your floors, tables or walls! The natural texture of these cork blocks allow them to be easily stacked without slippage. This is a great feature for kids who struggle with fine motor skills. It really cuts down on frustration and allows kids of all ages and abilities to have fun!

How to Prepare:

To prepare this learning activity, first download and print the critical thinking puzzle prompts HERE. Then print on cardstock, cut out the cards and laminate for durability. It is also a great idea to punch a hole in the corner of each card and hold them together with a ring to keep the cards organized!

How to Use Critical Thinking Puzzle Cards

Once you have printed, cut and laminated the cards, place them on the table with the KORXX blocks and invite your children to play! The critical thinking puzzle cards are numbered in the corner from 1 to 15, with number 1 being the easiest to build and number 15 being the most difficult.

Show the critical thinking puzzle cards to your child and challenge them to build one of the prompts. Some children will love building the designs exactly how they are shown on the cards, others will choose to build their own structures with the KORXX blocks or use the cards as inspiration for their own designs.
