The Power of Construction!

Construction play offers open ended opportunities for children to design and create imaginative structures. Using abstract, modular forms construction play presents a "what-if" question and allows children to construct and continually modify their own representations. Construction play requires fine and gross motor skills. Construction play enhances problem solving abilities, mathematic skills, and language skills. Construction play can also boost a child's self esteem! 

"What should we build?"

"We're going to use the green legos!"

"We're going to use the blue legos!"

"I built an airplane!"

"My airplane goes fast!"
