Today, Guaguai recommends content about “early education for babies by playing building block games”.
When it comes to playing with building block toys for babies, you will definitely not be unfamiliar. Building blocks are a good companion for babies. At first, the baby may just put the building blocks in their mouth and chew them, but later on, they will play with them. I would knock on a few building blocks to play a symphony, or transform into a “bulldozer”, repeatedly pushing down the hard built building blocks “Godzilla”. There is a gameplay that may be the baby’s favorite and most suitable currently, which is to stack the building blocks high.
Why is it said to be the most suitable? Because when the baby starts picking building blocks and trying to stack them one by one in a suitable position, they are also exercising their multiple abilities at the same time. Sorting building blocks requires babies to know how to recognize different shapes, sizes, and colors, which can improve their cognitive abilities. And planning how to build this “building block” has activated TA’s global concept and spatial thinking. In the end, it is important to stack the building blocks high while ensuring that each new block does not cause the “building” to collapse, which tests the baby’s fine motor skills. A simple building block game that can contain great wisdom.
In addition, the building block game also has a “water mode” that is very fun. As you may have guessed, the so-called water mode is to let the baby stack blocks while taking a shower. You need to buy some soft building blocks that can float and lay them on the water surface of the bathtub, so that the baby can pick them up one by one and stack them up. The buoyancy of water increases the difficulty of building blocks, but it also increases the fun. No baby doesn’t like playing with water, the combination of building blocks and water is perfect. For some babies who are already tired of building blocks, this is equivalent to unlocking a new challenge, which is truly perfect. In summary, let the baby play to their heart’s content and constantly discover new pleasures.

There must be many questions in your mind about how to provide early education for your baby. Today, Guagua selected two of the earliest online consultation experts in China, Dr. Zhang Silai, to provide an expert Q&A on early childhood education for babies. We hope it will be beneficial to you. For detailed information on expert interviews, please refer to the topic: Early Education Seizes the Window Period and Achieves More with Less Effort (click on the previous text to jump to the topic page)
Q: How to grasp the window period for children’s development in different aspects?
Dr. Zhang Silai’s answer:
Every motor skill, including major and fine movements, has its developmental window period. In the preschool stage, it is the window period for children’s hands-on ability development. Therefore, we should pay attention to the cultivation of children’s hands-on ability at this stage, so that they can quickly manage themselves. In the process of hands-on, children’s thinking and imagination abilities, including their attention, perseverance Concentration can be improved. So it is necessary to complete the corresponding education for the child within the window, as missing the window period may cause irreparable losses to the child’s life.
Q: How should family early childhood education be carried out in daily life?
Dr. Zhang Silai’s answer:
Family early education is a complex issue, and the key is for parents to learn scientific parenting knowledge. If parents do not learn the knowledge of scientific parenting, it is impossible to provide timely and appropriate guidance during the preschool stage of their children. How to do family early education specifically, as early education at different stages has different characteristics, it is also difficult to list them in detail here. In short, we hope that parents can learn scientific parenting knowledge in advance and grow up with their children while accompanying them.
