LEGO® enhances children’s Fine Motor Skills
As kids connect different shape and sizes of LEGO® together, they are required to use different amounts of pressure to do so. This is an incredible exercise for their fingers and hands and it also enhances their dexterity.
LEGO® improves Creativity and Imagination
Using the various colours, shapes and sizes, LEGO® allows children to explore their imagination to a whole new level. It allows children to “think outside the box” and there are no limitations to what you can build.
LEGO® encourages Patience and Persistence
When presented with a LEGO® free build” or “themed" task the majority of children will display a “can do and will do” attitude regardless of the amount of times it can take to complete.
LEGO® improves Social and Communication Skills
By sharing their knowledge and commenting on their own LEGO® creations, children develop important language and communication skills. Confidence is encourages when children are asked to describe their creation and how they constructed it, in a group environment.
LEGO® develops Problem Solving and Mathematical Thinking
When asked to follow instructions when assembling LEGO®, children are using their own problem solving and attention to detail skills. Some schools have also now introduced LEGO® to help children understand addition, subtraction and fractions.
LEGO® encourages Team Work
By building creations together children are encouraged and taught how to share and work in succession.
