It’s block time at our house! One of the best investments you can make with toys is to invest in blocks for your little one. Fabric ones are available for the youngest of babies that makes fun noises for them to enjoy. Lighter plastic ones are a good choice as they are easy to pick up. Then there are all sorts of Peek a Boo blocks available that are fun to stack and also to shake and rattle and look inside. Nesting blocks are a great choice to help your little ones begin to about varying sizes.
By around 12 months your little one should be able to start stacking the blocks on top of each other. Playing with blocks can help both your child’s brain and body. It also helps foster creativity. By playing with blocks your little one will naturally start to learn to organize, balance, and stack. These skills help to build their hand eye coordinating and fine motor skills. We started around the time my little one was sitting with the fabric blocks and lighter plastic blocks.
