We all know that playing with building toys is beneficial for children but did anyone ever tell you why? 

 

Improves fine motor manipulation and strength: Children have to learn how to move and manipulate various shaped objects, big and small, as well as have the fine motor control to “click” them into place.

Enhances spatial awareness: Building toys helps children enhance the understanding of their body and of the relationships between objects  which is crucial for reading readiness.

Encourages thinking and reasoning: These skills are what make children become well-rounded, independent and successful adults!

Involves focus and patience: Children need to work slowly and carefully to be successful at creating their designs.
