The ABCs of Building Blocks & Acorns … and The Weekly Kids Co-Op

(This post is part of my “ABCs of” feature series where I highlight one blogger a week by sharing fun facts about them A-Z!  Click here for the rest of the posts in the series!)

This week I’m featuring the ABCs of Building Blocks & Acorns.  Louise, the lovely lady behind the blog, is a UK mum and primary school teacher.  She strongly believes in hands on play … such as sensory play in and outdoors … and keeping things simple.  I definitely can’t argue with that!  You should check out her post on a 10-step DIY play kitchen or this one on Space in a Bowl.
