What Is Construction Play?
Construction play, also known as constructive play, is when a child builds, shapes or crafts something using a toy or other objects. This style of play typically has a goal-orientated approach. Examples of construction play include using building blocks to create a tower, making sandcastles, clay modelling, playdough crafts, cardboard construction, and fixing objects together with kids tools.
What Are The Benefits Of Construction Play?
The 10 benefits of construction play include (but are not limited to):
- Enhances fine and gross motor skills
- Inspires curiosity and imagination
- Encourages patience
- Improves focus and concentration
- Teaches teamwork
- Betters problem-solving skills
- Boosts confidence and independence
- Fosters physical exercise
- Supports mindfulness
- Motivates screen-free time
What Age Can You Start Construction Play?
Toddlers from the age of two will naturally start to enjoy construction play, as their attention spans lengthen and motor skills develop. At this age and above, children have a better chance of being able to sit for longer stretches of time and focus on one specific activity.
