Love those Legos

As a mom and grandma, I’ve spent a fortune on Legos, but it’s money well invested.

As an early childhood educator, I know children practice spatial reasoning skills when building. Kids visualize angles and space, notice small details and mentally manipulate those little blocks that are painful when stepped on.

Although our grandsons like watching Lego videos online, there’s no substitute for physically creating with blocks…and that’s why Legos will be under the Christmas tree again this year.
