Froebel Block Workshop at the Morton Grove Public Library
Froebel blocks were developed in the 1830s by Friedrich Froebel, the father of kindergarten, who believed that children learn through play. His series of smooth wooden blocks present geometric shapes and patterns in increasing complexity. Frank Lloyd Wright, who played with the blocks extensively as a child, credited them with inspiring his innovative Prairie style.
Now your children can discover the fun and excitement of building with Froebel blocks at the Morton Grove Public Library in a workshop presented by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust.
The workshop is appropriate for children ages 7 and up.
