This month’s Guidecraft Educator review and giveaway is for the Community Buildings (set of 6). These buildings are colorfully-painted and made of durable plywood.
- Police Station
- Fire Station
- Service Station
Each building has a 3.5″ high opening and is approximately 6.5″W x 5.75″D x 6.5″H. These Community Buildings work really well with toys you may already have, like blocks, small people figures, a train table, cars, and trucks, as well as some of the other Guidecraft sets, like the Roadway System and Block Play Traffic Signs. My kids had so much fun setting up a city with me on our train table!
These buildings would be perfect as part of a community helpers unit in a preschool or kindergarten classroom (or early child homeschool classroom). Children can explore different careers by using their imaginations to create communities. The children went to school in the school bus, the fire truck went in the fire station, the race car got gas at the service station, the people purchased vegetables at the store, the people who were sick went to the hospital in the ambulance, and the police car was parked at the police station. And as my children just discovered as I was writing this post, they make great ‘hiding places’ for all sorts of things, like pine cones!
