BENEFITS OF PLAYING WITH LEGO
Playing and creating different things with the use of Lego bricks is fun but, there are also benefits to it. Here is a list of benefits that kids can get from playing with Legos:
- FINE MOTOR SKILLS
Using Lego blocks is an excellent way to improve fine motor skills. Lego bricks are a terrific way for kids to exercise their fingers while building and picking up Lego parts. Children like the thrill of creating and can do so for hours, developing strong small muscles in their hands that will help them learn to write and other abilities.
- COOPERATIVE PLAY
It’s all too simple for Lego building to transform into a period of imagined pleasure filled with adventures, heroes, villains, animals, and even family members. Children can learn the same abilities they would learn from dramatic play or a dollhouse by playing with Lego mini-figures and pieces with their friends.
It makes no difference whether a child follows instructions or builds entirely from their thoughts. They’re putting together pieces of a puzzle! Children bring order out of chaos by picking up small bits everywhere around them to form a building, car, or boat.
Every Lego design is an artistic expression. The only limitation is a kid’s imagination. With the hundreds of small pieces, children become artists. They may construct their mental images using wheels, shapes, and even people figures. It has the potential to be informative, entertaining, and even soothing.
- LEARN SOME MATH
Not to mention addition and subtraction! When a child is given a set amount of Legos to finish a project, they learn that every single one matters. They begin to recognize the worth of each and every brick, mini figure, and component! Children can even start rationing their supplies in order to finish their creation.
