Let’s Talk about Counting
From the very earliest of ages you can start teaching math concepts to your toddler or preschooler using the LEGO® bricks as if they were counting rods. When Little Man was my Little Boy we spent hours counting, sorting, and stacking bricks. Simply counting the bricks with your child on a regular basis is foundational for many skills learned later. Repetition is key with our littlest ones. Math education using LEGO math doesn’t have to be complicated, it’s easy with these free printable worksheets.
