More Than Building: 10 Fabulous Duplo Block Activity Ideas

Duplo block activity ideas

A reader recently asked over on the Childhood 101 Facebook page for activity suggestions for using Duplo blocks now that her children had moved on to using smaller Lego blocks for building. I was so impressed with the collection of Duplo based play and learning ideas shared that I have put them all together into one post as an activity resource for us all.
