Construction Zone

It’s all about the math! Construction play, no matter what the scale, offers many mental challenges to do with measurement, symmetry, equality, balance, shape, spatial relationships and physical properties. Playing at construction, children are doing math.


  • Create structures from large blocks
  • Create a maze on the ball walls
