Sand is marvelous, but don’t miss the sea’s other building tool: sea stones. Smoothed by the elements and yet still irregular in shape, these blocks challenge kids in a way that even our favorite old wooden blocks can’t. Kids learn about balance, develop strategies and activate their imaginations with each stack, tower or little world they build.
