Summary: Playing with blocks provides the opportunity for your baby to develop their creative and manipulation skills as well as helping them to understand the concepts of size and weight.

  • Large blocks are easier for babies to handle – small blocks can also pose as a chocking hazard.
  • Be creative and make your own set of blocks. You can use milk cartons, cardboard boxes or cardboard rolls. You can cover these with wrapping paper.
  • Enhance your baby’s experience by placing bells, rice or other sound-making items inside handmade blocks. Be sure to seal them securely and check on a regular basis for any safety hazards.
  • Encourage the use of other toys, e.g. if you are building roads or houses you might like to introduce some cars or dolls.
