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!

i <3 legos they are so much FUN
That’s a cool challenge – we have lots of Legos at home and I think some Duplo
Thanks, Lena. Stop by every day for a new way to play and share with us your ideas..
We don’t have any Duplos but I want to get some for my son so much! I think he would love them! I cannot wait until my son is Lego age! I loved Legos when I was young!
I am sure he will love them! It is a safe toy, not messy and can enhance a lot of skills
This is such a cool challenge! I miss the Lego Duplo stage. My son is into regular Legos now, and some of those pieces are miniscule! Guess who has to assemble all of them? I’ll give you a hint, it’s NOT my son! He just likes to play with them when they’re together. Still, Legos are awesome and fun!
LOL Nikki!! My 10 year-old is in regular Legos too. He does not need my help anymore.. snif, snif..
When he was 6, he did not want to assemble them! I helped him A LOT!
Oh how fun! I want to get some of these blocks for my daughter,
She will love them! and you too!!
What a fun challenge!! I’m not in Canada, but I’m going to play along with my little man…he LOVES to build!!
Thanks Janet!! Every one in the family is having fun. Each day the kids say: mommy, what do you want us to make today?
