CONSTRUCTION TOYS DECONSTRUCTED.
None of us have the time for me to sit and list the benefits of construction, but trust and believe me when I say…CONSTRUCTION RULES. From maths and science, social and emotional, problem solving, confidence, trial and error, and pure enjoyment, there are few activities and events that rival the excitement in a child when this stuff is thrown out on a matt. There are approximately a billion brilliant toys to choose from but here I have listed 5 of the ones I personally have seen kids lose there cool over.
Side note: I have left lego out of this list intentionally. Hey, there’s a movie about the stuff. Me thinks they be doin’ fine without my endorsement.
