little one to enjoy learning may seem like
an uphill battle but it can be done if you
know a few tricks of the trade. Here are
a few of our favorite educational toys sure
to have your little learning . . . even
if he doesn’t know it.
Educational Coloring Pages
Did you know that coloring is vital to a
child’s development? Coloring helps children
develop fine motor skills and aids in concentration.
The best thing about coloring? You can do
it for free at our site
The Leap Frog Handheld
Leap Frog’s educational toys are a staple
among us mommies. We especially love their
handheld products, which offer little ones
all the fun of gaming mixed in with learning
wonder. If you are the mother of a gamer,
you know how addicting games can be. From
favorite characters, adventures and even
educational coloring, Leap Frog offers something
for every little birdie in your nest. And
just think . . . at least if you have a
“But mom, just five more minutes” meltdown,
they’ll be learning in the process!
Lego Building Sets
Lego has long been a master of educational
toys because it has a way of disguising
learning in fun little packages. Choose
a set that best fits your child’s age range.
Give them the instructions, which are pictures
only, and watch them go. It helps little
ones work on their sorting skills and thinking
processes all without letting on that they
are learning along the way.
Educational toys instill
a lifelong love of learning in little ones.
Remember that even imaginative play can
become an opportunity for learning. From
educational coloring to a tea party spent
with her favorite teddies, any time can
be the perfect time for learning.
