Children love to build, and it's no wonder. The construction activity enables them to play without restrictions that go beyond their own ideas. And, as it turns out, they benefit enormously from building: improved motor skills, increased visual and spatial awareness and a sense of achievement that boosts their self-confidence. Building is part of the STEM training and participation in Makerspace activities encourages young hobbyists to become the engineers and inventors of tomorrow. To encourage this type of play, we've put together a list of our favorite construction and construction toys that are perfect for class or at home.
