Construction play develops all types of skills and behaviours:

The physical skills necessary to manipulate and control chosen toy and manipulatives.

Problem-solving skills and ability to test ideas: balance, proportion, and other concepts.

The ability to plan the use of materials to see a design idea become a reality: represent thoughts and ideas.

Perseverance in the face of construction challenges.

Cooperative skills and teamwork: behaviours necessary to successfully and collaboratively complete a task together.
