Our Teacher Tips
Stacking objects into towers is a skill that encourages hand-eye coordination and fine motor development. Encourage your little one to stack the blocks by following Educational theorist, Lev Vygotsky’s, Zone of Proximal Development, to scaffold your child’s learning. You can do this by; “I do” (demonstrate stacking), “we do” (stack blocks together, helping to centre and balance them), then finally, "you do” (child independently stacks).
For older children, discuss 3D shapes using language such as, corners, edges and faces to count the shapes attributes.
What is the best age for my child to start playing with the Construction Blocks?
Blocks are an iconic childhood toy. They spark curiosity, evoke open ended play and are ideal for children to play with from an early age.
From aprroximately 9-12 months your child can be expected to grasp the blocks, and from 18 months aquire the ability to stack and balance two or three wooden blocks. At 2 years and beyond, cooridntion will allow your child to stack multiple blocks and they will begin to use there imagination to explore imaginative play, etting creative-building structures such as forts, buildings, bridges and tunnels.
