Playing with blocks is a very fun game for children of all ages but, do you know that blocks are great to develop different skills?
Studies suggest that playing with blocks can help kids develop:
– motor skills and hand-eye coordination,
– spatial skills,
– a capacity for creative thinking,
– social skills, and
– language skills.
The best way to encourage children to play with blocks is participating you, teaching them how to build with the blocks, and even combining block play with story time, which can give the children more ideas of things to build.
