Construction Play for the Whole Family
By Amanda Bindel, Toca Magazine Writer
Construction play lets kids bring their creative ideas to life. It develops fine motor skills and spatial reasoning skills. And it’s fun for all ages, making it a great way for parents and kids to play together, building bonds while building with toys. While you build together, you can model problem solving and creative thinking without saying a word about it. While your hands are busy building, you’re free to talk and share and laugh about anything.
