Building with blocks is easy to do and has tons of hidden benefits for kids of all ages, especially when you join in on the fun from time to time.
-
For babies and toddlers, talk to them about what color or shape they're holding and show them how to stack blocks to build simple towers. Sticking blocks together and pulling them apart is also great at this age.

-
With preschool and early elementary kids, simply ask what they’d like to build and set to work creating whatever their imagination dreams up. It’s fun to help them learn to make enclosures, build bridges, recognize patterns and symmetry, and create structures that represent real objects.

-
Older kids might prefer doing their own thing while you build your own creation close by, and that's great too. Doing a side-by-side activity together can be the perfect time to check in on how they’re doing, since it often seems more natural to talk while you both have your hands busy.
