New study links block play to better spatial reasoning ability

Studies by the Association of Psychological Science (APS) have linked specific types of play with the development of particular cognitive skills. A recent published APS journal suggests that children who regularly play with blocks, puzzles and board games have increased levels of spatial reasoning ability.

For example, block play enables children to develop their spatial skills, learning about space and how to manipulate objects within it. These skills are crucial in everyday life, whether it’s navigating a busy street, assembling a new toy or helping load the dishwasher. Encouraging imagination, problem solving, self-expression and self-esteem, kids are constantly developing their motor abilities. Elements of mathematics and science are also established, building reasoning skills of measurement, symmetry and estimation.
