How do I get earlier blocks

Hello Ginette, thanks for the question! I’m including the link to the main post with the links to all the currently published blocks below. It’s updated each day after the block of the day is published. You can also always find this link under the section that says “Ready for the next block?” Have a great day making! -Emily
