I believe that children learn about the world and prime for themselves for future achievements when they play. Play can enhance social skills, fine motor skills, spatial awareness and more. But all play activities are not equal. Watching TV for few hours is too passive to provide the benefits needed. Engaging them in a rigid activity where they cannot express their creativity will not encourage certain skills to develop. A balance is needed!
You can reach this balance when your child plays with blocks. Playing with blocks can enhance fine motor skills, classifying skills, creativity, counting, etc. These reasons brought me to signed up for this amazing blog tour: LEGO® DUPLO® 30 Days of Play Challenge. I am so excited that our site was selected for this challenge!
For those who have never used LEGO® DUPLO®, here is a bit about them:
- LEGO® DUPLO® preschool building toys are specially designed for the small hands and big imaginations of children aged 1½ – 5 years. DUPLO bricks are twice the size of standard LEGO bricks, making them a great way to kick off a child’s building career
- Their adventure began in 1969. They use the highest techniques to make sure that your child is safe while playing with their products
- Did you know that a LEGO® DUPLO® brick can resist the pressure of 15kg!! or that the storage box will not break if your child climbs on it!
