You want to make sure your child has the best possible start to their development. But, with so many choices in the toy aisle, it can be hard to know where to start. Here are some preschool teacher approved toys that will teach them and help your toddler grow.
A Pikler Triangle is a large wooden scaffold triangle that your toddler can climb on. Toddlers love to climb things. You can use a Pikler Triangle indoors or outside. It can also be combined with different additions for more elaborate climbing and play structures.
This is a great toy for helping children learn about different letters of the alphabet. It is an early version of the alphabet block that kids use to learn how to play with letters later on in life. The soft, sensitive sandpaper letters work well on any smooth surface while you are doing chores or while your child learns how to color. This toy will teach your child about different letter shapes while teaching them how to make printed words on paper.
These balls are bright and fun! Preschool teachers love these because they can be used without supervision and can help children develop their fine motor skills as well as their gross motor skills. The colors of the balls will grab your child’s attention and they will enjoy running around, chasing them around or rolling them along the floor to see what happens next.
This is a great toy for kids ages one to three years of age. It has seven different colors of blocks, each colored in different patterns so they are fun to use even for small children.
These wooden toys can be a great tool for introducing a child to a variety of skills while teaching them the importance of motor skills and learning through play. These blocks will help your child develop important body parts such as their arms, hands, and fingers while also teaching them about tools that can be used with these blocks, such as hammers, screwdrivers, and pliers. This is a great toy to introduce your toddler to the idea of building and creating with their own hands.
Books are a great way for children to learn about everything from art to drawing to math while having fun. At preschool and at home, books can be read aloud, or your child can read them by themselves. There are also great books that teach children about different countries or have interactive parts that your child can complete on their own, which is a great way for them to learn more about the world around them.
Children use the hoopla tunes to play catchy tunes that will stick in their heads for their entire life. This is an interactive toy that encourages your child to interact with it by pressing on certain parts of it with their fingers. The more they play with their toys, the more familiar these tunes will become and the more they will be able to remember them later on in life.
