  • In short, do not only afford long-lasting play, but also fundamental educational lessons that will be invaluable in later life. Because of this, adults who work with young children would do well to learn the names of geometric shapes, the built-in mathematical concepts their children will draw on in playing with blocks, and the developmental stages exhibited by children during play. Unit blocks ought to be an integral part of every childhood.

    All our wooden play blocks are sanded by hand and have smooth edges. As they are not varnished they do not easily fall when building. All of the wooden play block sets on this page, except the block puzzle, come in a cotton net bag.The objects of play should be as simple as possible so that the child can clothe them with her own natural powers of imagination.Francis Edmunds

  • So how do you play Mine Blocks? For moving your (very cool) avatar, you will mostly use your keyboard: A, W, left, and right will make the player walk, or you can also use the arrows. W or space is for jumping and S, for crouching. In creative mode you can fly just by pressing the arrow that point upwards and you can even survive for hours underwater without breathing.

These toy blocks are sturdy and will provide hours of fun, teaching kids not only the alphabet but architectural concepts that will develop hand-eye coordination.

  • Wooden Play Blocks

    Block play encourages children to match, count and sort. While watching your child playing with blocks or co-playing with him, talk about the shapes of the blocks (rectangles, squares and triangles) as well as the colors and number of blocks. It's a good idea to use interlocking unit blocks, such as Lego Duplo. These blocks, which are made for children ages one-and-a-half to five, come in various sizes that can be stacked in many different arrangements. When a child puts two smaller blocks together, it will equal one of the larger blocks. This is a fantastic way to introduce the meaning of big and little, as well as half and whole. Blocks can teach young children many of the basic matching, counting and sorting concepts which are taught in preschool and kindergarten.

Playing with blocks helps enhance your child's creativity. Just because kids are little doesn't mean they don't have big ideas. In the beginning of play, ask what your child wants to build and help him devise a plan. During play, without doing the construction for him, continue to ask questions such as, "Do you think it is going to stay balanced?" and "Do you want to make a space for a door?" This will encourage your child to continue to think and create. Block play is very beneficial to cognitive development and problem-solving skills.
