Kapla blocks are beautiful, smooth-sanded pine building planks for people of all ages. We got a set of these when Ben was about thirteen, and we’ve loved them ever since. We keep them in a pretty basket in the living or family room so they’re always ready to play with. It’s amazing all the interesting structures you can build with them.
Just like any other types of building blocks, Kapla blocks are great for quiet, meditative play, filled with concentration and creative designing. Of course, they’re also great for working with a partner, giving opportunities for teamwork, conversation, planning, and laughter.
As you can see, there are numerous possibilities. Here’s another great collection of Kapla images for more ideas and inspiration. Have fun building!
