Tell me that this isn't one of the most clever games ever!
Stein Auf Stein or Block on Block from Haba is a game that can be played multiple ways. Young children can simply free play with the magnetic crane and blocks. Preschoolers can roll the colored die and use the crane to pick up the corresponding block to build a tower. Older children can take the game further by using the measuring stick provided to measure each player's tower.
This game was a big hit with Satch!
Later, we made a pot of vegetarian cornbeef & cabbage (in memory of his maternal great grandma) then decorated some cupcakes with emerald green sugar....
and put some scraps out for the deer.
