    • Drawing – Learning to draw comes with a variety of developmental benefits for children. Drawing helps stimulate their imaginations, improve fine motor skills, exercise problem-solving strategies and can also help them gain confidence in their ability to master new crafts. Drawing teaches children to make decisions and can improve visual and perceptual skills as well.

     

    • Blocks – Toy blocks and other construction toys might not be as flashy as battery-powered robots or video games. But as developmental psychologist Rachel Keen notes, parents and teachers “need to design environments that encourage and enhance problem solving from a young age”.

    • Painting – Painting allows children to express their creativity and have fun. Developing a skill like painting provides the stimulus children need to be successful in all aspects of life. Let’s see how learning to paint can benefit your child!

     

    • Play Dough – Play dough is one of those play materials that you can find in almost every early learning environment. It is highly attractive to young children and leads to many hours of creative play.

     

    • Reading Corner – The Reading Corner provides an age-appropriate academic learning environment based on best practice with quality literacy instruction at the core.

     

    • Puzzles – From early childhood right through to adulthood we love to play with puzzles.  We like the way they challenge our thinking and exercise our minds. Puzzles are also an important educational learning tool for toddlers and young children as they provide many skills and mental learning benefits and opportunities.

    • Lego – Teaching early childhood, I try to promote development within six areas: fine motor, gross motor, self-help and adaptive skills, language, cognitive, and social-emotional. I found that with LEGO Education Preschool sets, I can use them in multifaceted ways. For example, the Dolls Family Set can be used to develop social-emotional skills with role-playing, language skills for telling stories, cognitive skills for understanding and sequencing, and of course, fine-motor skills for physical manipulation of the blocks. With each set I am able to foster several areas of child development.

    • Sand Play – Children have always been intrigued by sand play. They dig in sand, sift it, build with it, pour it, enjoy the feel and smell of it, pretend with it, and explore how it moves. Sand is such a great sensory toy for kids as they explore their sense of touch and play and discover the wonderful texture of sand!
