The skill of construction
Through play children learn all manner of different skills. Gross motor skills as well as fine motor skills are both developed and refined when using construction toys. Whether children balance small objects or huge big ones they are developing a skill specific to the size of the object. Hand to eye coordination is also a skill refined during construction toy play.
The Science behind construction
Science also plays a part. Gear sets are ideal for older children who are taking their first steps into science and how things work! As children balance the bricks and blocks they understand about gravity and how that works. Children examine their bricks as they are stacked and squeal and shout as they tumble. They learn shapes and sizes. How heavy something weighs and what shape supports another are all key learning’s children receive during play.
Even a very young child playing with popoids is developing dexterity and nimble fingers. Playing with construction toys also helps children develop creativity and confidence because they see their structures grow.
