Block building and learning

Block play is a form of Open-Ended Play where children learn through playing with blocks, which allows them to be imaginative or constructive. It is a useful and versatile learning technique during the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and is a great way to introduce toddlers to many concepts for the first time, such as transporting, building, representations, pattern-making, problem-solving, and much more.

As children get older, particularly between the ages of two and five, they’ll gradually build up more complex block play techniques and extend their learning. Block play aids children’s skills and development across the board.
