Benefits of Playing with Building Blocks
1. Motor Skills
Building blocks help a child develop their motor skills and their hand-eye coordination. It’s not easy for toddlers to stack blocks in such a way that they form a tower or other structure. By manipulating blocks and other objects, young kids become adept at small physical actions like stacking and balancing.
2. Language and Communication Skills
Viga wooden building blocks come with a variety of differently shaped, patterned and coloured pieces. By playing with blocks day-in and day-out, your child will begin to pick up on concepts like colours and shapes. You can encourage him/her to learn these, too.
It is fascinating to watch children at play. They work hard at it! And chances are that if you give one hundred different kids the same set of toy blocks, they will build one hundred different structures. Blocks are one of the best toys for enabling a child’s imagination and creativity to blossom. Stacking them in different configurations leads to almost infinite possibilities.
4. Spatial Intelligence
Are you good at arranging suitcases and boxes inside a car trunk so that no space is wasted? What about choosing the right size of a plastic container to hold all the leftover spaghetti sauce? That’s your spatial intelligence at work. Spatial reasoning is what allows us to visualize objects and their motion in our “mind’s eye.” Not only that but high spatial intelligence is linked to other cognitive abilities, including problem-solving. As you can imagine, playing with building blocks is an incredibly effective way to develop spatial intelligence.
