This book gives ideas for introducing and extending construction activities and experiences for babies and young children. Each page spread contains a range of experiences and a selection of ideas for each of the four developmental stages of the Birth to Three Matters Framework, and extends this progression into the early Stepping Stones for the Foundation Stage. The experiences with construction materials described in this book encourage development and learning through active play using all the senses. Of course, many babies and children will want to taste the experience as well!
