Construction Play

Construction play involves manipulating one or multiple elements of the play environment to construct something new. This may involve all sorts of construction methods – stacking, assembling, disassembling, sorting or moulding, to name a few.

Construction play develops all types of skills and behaviours;

  • The physical skills necessary to manipulate and control the chosen toy or material
  • Problem solving skills
  • The ability to plan the use of materials to see a design idea become a reality
  • The ability to test ideas
  • Perseverance in the face of construction challenges
  • When working with others, team work behaviours necessary to successfully and collaboratively complete a task together.
