What blocks can do for your child ...
Playing with blocks is all about perception and eye-hand coordination. This is an excellent way to work on their fine motor skills. You could also create a small stack of blocks or an obstacle course that your child could climb over or navigate through to enhance their gross motor skills.
Use blocks to show patterns of shape or color or demonstrate units of measure. Stack a tower 6 blocks high and show your child the difference between and one that's 4 blocks high. How many are left when you take two away?
Physics basics are easily demonstrated through block play. Show your child inclined planes and levers or build two different structures and see how different foundations withstand an "earthquake".
A group of children playing together with blocks is an excellent opportunity to teach sharing and teamwork. Clean-up time will be another learning opportunity.
