Building is a playful way for children to develop problem-solving skills, learn math vocabulary, and strengthen hand-eye coordination. Block building, stacking, and creating structures of any kind is also a wonderful way for children to build their independent play skills, be creative, and develop a strong sense of self esteem and achievement.
