Not only is building with blocks fun it also develops many learning skills. Some examples include:

  • Literacy and Language: Introduction of Vocabulary, Creating Stories
  • Math: Measuring, Comparing, Couting
  • Science: Balancing, Ramps, Stable Foundations
  • Social: Sharing, Communication, Working Together
  • Creativity and Exploration: Free Expression, Imagination
  • Physical Skills: Motor Skills (lifting, carrying), Hand Eye Coordination
  • Problem Solving: Planning, Cause and Effect

And these are just some of the great benefits children get from playing with blocks.
