Construction and building, with bricks or blocks, is an essential part of children’s formative and physical development. At Early Years Resources, we have sourced an extensive range of children’s construction toys with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in mind. From Knowledge and Understanding of the World to Creative Development, our extensive range of children's contruction sets will provide excellent resources for you to utilise the themes and principles of the EYFS curriculum.
Simple wooden building blocks allow very young children to learn about balance as they stack bricks, before progressing to more creative blocks and building with simple construction sets. Natural wooden contruction blocks and giant hollow blocks are a great way to develop gross motor skills through play, both indoors and outdoors. To add another dimension to constructing, we have included a wide range of magnetic construction sets as well as some well known brands such as Lego Duplo, Sticklebricks, Mobilo and Polydron. To help develop fine motor skills we have an extensive range of children’s construction toys using nuts and bolts and cogs and gears, with our marble runs and tubular sets adding an extra challenge.
As well as children’s construction toys we also have available an extensive collection of fine motor skills toys. In addition to this, we also have a great selection of jigsaws for children available to buy online.
