The research says playing with blocks is good for a child’s cognitive, physical, and social development. But let’s make this simple.

Blocks are good for your brain, body, and soul. Here’s how:

 

 

 

Blocks: Good for Your Brain

Think of what a child’s brain can learn by playing with blocks.

Play block games with children to enhance their intellectual development.

 

 

 

 

 

Numbers

How many blocks can you stack on top of each other before they fall? Can you count them?

Enjoy conversations that include games and questions like “how high?” and “how long?” and “how many?”

 

 

 

 

 

Equations

Similarly, blocks can foster a conversation about mathematical equations. Play if/then games.

If I have four blocks and give you one, then how many blocks do I have? Make multiplication tables come alive in three dimensions.
