Posted December 5, 2016 by Julie in Gift Guides, Parenting, TopPosts / 6 Comments

Older toddlers and preschoolers are in a very special part of their lives – everything is a toy, it is always playtime, and everywhere is an opportunity to learn.  Here are some wonderful educational toys to help enrich their minds while giving their little bodies something fun to do.



Toys for Building

Building toys, such as blocks, are wonderful for little minds and tiny hands. Not only do they help build motor skills, but these activities develop critical thinking as well.





Toys that are Active

Toys that promote movement and an active play time are great for tiny people. They not only help build coordination and motor skills but are also good for fitness.





Toys for Pretend Play

Pretend play is very important for tiny minds. They mimic us adults so much at this stage, and it is fun to watch them invent realities to act out.  Toys such as play kitchens, dress up, puppets, play medical kits, etc. are wonderful for preschoolers.







Toys that Inspire Thinking

Board games and puzzles help build critical thinking skills. Plus, they can be fun to do together with our children! Here are some ideas.
