Stacking and Counting Blocks

Exploring the concept of cause and effect is a great way to build foundational mathematical learning in young minds. Stacking and counting blocks or objects is a fun and educational way to explore this concept, and encourage hand-eye coordination too!

In this activity, your child will develop fine motor skills, begin understanding early concepts of geometry and problem solving. For older children, try introducing concepts of gravity. Keep this activity fun and allow your child to knock over their creations - it's all part of the learning process!
