Did you know?: The power of Lego!

My son has just discovered Lego duplo and he is loving it. The concentration on his face is adorable as he tries to build all sorts of things. I decided to google some information on the benefits of Lego & it’s impact on his development.

Lego can help aid your child’s creativity & brain development, and it’s also lots of fun! I have included some links below on advantages of playing with Lego or blocks, and how they encourage children’s imaginations.

‘Whenever you think a thought unfamiliar to you, YOU are being creative. Creativity is the ability to generate ideas and artefacts that are new, surprising and valuable. When children make things (build and create), when they make things up (imagine and fantasise) and when they play make believe (doing ‘as if’ and pretending) they harness curiosity and playfulness into three different kinds of creativity: combination, exploration and transformation.’ http://learninginstitute.lego.com/en-us/research/systematic-creativity/

    Lego was one of my favourites when I was a kid! I absolutely agree with you Lego is amazing fun and one of the best toys for developing kids’ minds. It encourages creative play and is excellent for visuospatial development.

    I totally believe in the power of Legos! I encourage my girls to play with them — I’d love to raise a woman engineer!
