Giving children building blocks for learning purposes will help to expand their knowledge and dexterity. Playing with construction sets in conjunction with others is also a way to instill social graces within a child. Laser Pegs® sells many construction sets that will aid in the educational development of your child.
With building blocks, bricks or construction sets, a child will reap many great benefits.
Motor refinement- when a child uses blocks for play, they are able to build their arm, hand, and finger muscles. Eye-hand coordination becomes more defined as they stack blocks on top of each other or push interlocking blocks together. Overall, the child develops increased motor skill refinement.
Social skills- building blocks and construction kits for group play will help the children develop necessary skills with one another. Everyone in the group will identify blocks that they would like to use for their building purposes. Sharing and communicating about the light up construction pieces with the others in the group will establish social skills.
Awareness- asking a child to reconstruct objects that they have seen in their surroundings will help them become more aware of the world around them.
Speech- when adults build with children and ask them to describe what they have created, the child learns to articulate themselves to others and adults. A way to build vocabulary in older children would be to help them write correctly for their projects.
