The Benefits of Bricks…
For pre-school aged children, brick play is an important dominant play activity. Bricks are one of the top educational toys. Building bricks give kids a chance to build their own worlds, and in doing so, help them develop a variety of skills…
Intellectual - Building is all about size, shape, weight, leverage, and balance, and as children work this out, their building and brick play will become more and more complex. As the complexity increases, so does their concentration level. Building and brick play also helps children develop problem solving skills, especially once they begin to develop specific plans in their head.
Physical -Babies and toddlers enjoy playing with big bricks which require fine motor skills to pick up, and gross motor skills to move about. As children get older, building bricks get more detailed and require precise movements with plenty of control. This type of play helps to develop fine motors skills which can be transferred to other learning areas
Emotional & Social - At a young age, brick play is an activity which your child can do alone, or together with friends. Creating farmyards or towns means that two children can be working on one project, but still maintain their independence. This is a great way to introduce children to cooperative play.
