Wearable Blocks

Introduction: Wearable Blocks

“Play is often talked about as if were a relief from serious learning. but, for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood” -by Fred Rogers

Children are always active and curious, everything is worth exploring with all of their senses. Wearable blocks are playful toys that can enhance children’s communication, develop their sensory system and give them a chance to play with diversity behaviors.

Step 1: Shape Design

Drawing the cutting shape.

Step 2: Paper Craft

Step 3: Create Circuit

Materials Used:

Bristol board

White glue stick

Copper tape

Cell batteries

Conductive Ink



Step 4: Conductive Fabric

Sew the magnets inside the conductive fabric, so that blocks can stick on it. The mechanism is that every block has a battery inside, copper tape is used for connecting LED and battery. When the block touch the conductive materials, the electric circuit will be connected, and LED will light up. While the block detach the conductive materials, LED will light off.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Try to stick the blocks on your body and turn yourself to a lamp...haha
