Enviroblox Alphabet

My kids really enjoy playing with Enviroblox.  Today, R decided to use them to make letters of the alphabet.

They are so easy to mold.  They feel like packaging peanuts, but squishier.  You just have to get them a tiny bit damp and they stick together.  The package we bought came with a sponge that you can use to dampen the building pieces, but we just keep our hands damp while we are working with them and that works well for us.  Once they dry, you can use them over and over and over again, but if they do start to disintegrate, you can just run water over them and watch them disappear - they are biodegradable!

You can build anything with these, and they are fun for all ages!  We bought ours at Ocean State Job Lot (a Big Lots type of store) really cheap, so check discount stores before paying full price.

Those beads are really great! Hey I'm looking for a way to e-mail you, but I'm just not seeing it. Could you e-mail me at

We just got a small batch in Target $1 section, but haven't had time to test them yet. Building letters is a neat idea!

Those look like fun!

Those do look fun! I like the idea of building the alphabet, words, numbers. I can see where the ideas could be unlimited.

I've always loved these and it's something I've been meaning to get for Jack for months now. They are so much fun!
