Construction play for toddlers

Playing in the construction corner is different for every age. The Early Years construction area consists mainly of blocks. With these ealy years construction toys and blocks, toddlers can learn to stack and experiment. Building with different kinds of construction play toys contributes to the development of motor skills and eye-hand coordination. In addition, toddlers also learn to recognise shapes and colours. Setting up a block area is best done with open-ended materials such as large building blocks; these materials stimulate the imagination and creativity of small children.

Why set up a construction area eyfs?

Children learn many new skills in the eyfs construction area. Improving motor skills, spatial awareness and eye-hand coordination as well as playing together and coming up with solutions are skills that toddlers and preschoolers can learn in a well-designed play corner. While playing with the early years construction corner toys and materials, toddlers learn to interact with other children and to play together.

Educational construction play- toys, materials and furniture

Construction play, or constructive play is the type of play children engage in when manipulating materials or toys to construct or create something. Kinderspell offers a versatile range of educational and high-quality construction corner toys, materials and blocks, such as Kapla wooden building boards, large soft building blocks, DUPlO blocks and also construction play material for building a course. 

Apart from early years construction toys, you can decorate and expand the early years construction area with special furniture. For example, by placing a building table in the block corner, children can easily play together on a project and the play corner is easier to define. Variety and freedom in play also support children's confidence in their own creativity. Little tips and tricks and educational construction materials can make the construction area eyfs even more attractive.

Preschool construction area

The preschool construction corner in day-care centres, kindergartens, playgroups and nurseries promotes not only hand-eye coordination, but also patience, social interaction, fantasy and spatial imagination. In the context of playful learning, working with building materials is also a good way to practise playing without instruction.

Toddlers can use simple stacking games to build a tower and discover the joy of this form of play. Depending on the age group, it is a good idea to check the construction play activities for preschoolers
for children under 3, for example whether there is no risk of them swallowing it. Toddlers can create great works of art in the early years construction area using large building blocks, among other things.

Variety of early years construction toys and materials

To make the early years construction area stimulating and encouraging, it is important to change the materials and blocks regularly. If a box of building blocks is not used for a while, the toys offered again will be more interesting and stimulating for the children. By observing how toddlers and preschoolers play freely with the blocks and materials, it soon becomes clear which toys are no longer interesting and these toys can be temporarily swapped. Regular exchange of toys makes the early years construction area orderly. It is easier for the children to concentrate on the material and this promotes involvement in play.
