Wooden Toys For The 4 Year Old

by Tested_to_Destruction

Wooden toys are not just durable toys for children, they also make nice educational toys as well. Their simplicity encourages imaginative play time and again - always a good thing.

Of the many wooden toys currently available, blocks and pegs are but two examples. Beyond those, many are handcrafted specifically for educational purposes, such as alphabet letters and wooden clocks.

Using them as they were designed to be used, you'll soon have your four-year-old reading basic books, and that's a far better way to spend indoor moments than just watching TV, or hooked up to a games console.

Blocks are designed to enhance children's imagination. Simple wooden blocks can cultivate your child's imagination so that they create buildings - towers, houses and more. Every child needs their own blocks, from infants to preschoolers.

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Kitchen Accessory Set

Is there any child who wouldn't love to have their own set of cooking toys? One way or another, they will probably find a way to imitate a chef at work in the kitchen. The preschool years are the perfect time to provide your child a Deluxe Wooden Kitchen Accessory Set, as these are the peak of the years of role-playing games.

When they start to play with other kids in the neighborhood, kids will generally want to cook every plant and flower in your backyard. So make sure it is a very durable kitchen accessory set, not only appropriate for their age now, but durable enough to last for many years and to hand down to a little brother or sister. This set's red paint may chip off some--but only after years of handling.

And don't think that a child who plays in the kitchen is only interested in food.  Some preschool cooks are acting out their interest in "what happens if I mix this with this?"  By providing this set, you may be encouraging a junior chemist!
