Future Builder

When children use tools to create, they learn to plan, reflect and problem solve.

Children can use real tools to accomplish a task they set themselves. This encourages them to learn how to cope with unexpected challenges.

Children learn how things connect and how physical structures fit into their world when building. Their hand-eye coordination and sense of perspective continues to develop.

They develop an understanding of concepts such as shapes, measuring, size, balance, length and force. They can express their creativity in a three-dimensional way, engaging their imagination by allowing them to design and build.
