em cima dos /sobre os blocos
Explanation:
"Onto" como "into" denota movimento.


Ambos, onto e on significam sobre, em cima. Eu usuaria "em cima" para "onto" e "sobre" para "on"


I mentioned having "different meanings'' but actually, at least in North America, on can have the same meaning as onto. In fact we usually say The waiter is putting the food on the table and we mean exactly the same as if we had said onto.
