It takes a lot of concentration…
And when it falls… she giggles.
Then she starts again.

I’ve read somewhere that building blocks is a great educational toy that develops multiple skills in a child.
Benefits of playing with blocks include:
- Hand eye coordination – The child has to learn to place the block on the block tower in such a way that does not topple the tower.
- Hand strength
- Spatial awareness
- Improves fine motor skills
- Enhances logical thinking capability
I recommend the following blocks:
Haba First Blocks – This is like the one I have except that mine came with a wooden wagon.
Giant Building Blocks by Imagiplay- I personally LOVE the cardboard blocks but unfortunately they do not sell them here in South Africa. I used to play with those as a child.
Melissa & Doug 100 piece wooden block set - I don’t have this one yet but I would love to purchase this. This is great for an older child.
