It really is all fun and games for toddlers, and that’s okay. That’s how they learn and grow. Since the holidays are here, I have some great games for you to check out, from Educational Insights.
It’s All Fun and Games for Toddlers
And there’s nothing wrong with that! So let’s get into the nitty gritty of these new and adorable games. My nieces love them and I guarantee your little ones will too!
A Barn, Farm Animals, and Peekaboo fun
Peekaboo may be one of the first games that we ever play with our children. Peekaboo Barn™ Game takes this a step further. It’s a three dimensional barn in which you and your child place the animals. Then you push the silo and watch as they go in and out of the barn. The object is to get all of the animals asleep except the rooster.
This game isn’t only cute and toddler friendly, but it also promotes learning. It promotes storytelling and vocabulary development. It also encourages social and interactive play. Peekaboo Barn Game would make a great addition for family game night with the younger kids.
Okay, so this game is precious! The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel game is sure to make your little ones squeal with delight! Not only is it absolutely adorable, but again, it’s a game that secretly fosters learning in your kids.
To win, kids must be the first to fill their log with yummy acorns! They will have a blast while learning their colors, and practicing their memory and attention skills. This game also fosters hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, and helps with pre-handwriting skills.
Oh, and there’s even a book about The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel.
From a Special Needs Mama’s Eyes
In our home, games and toys don’t have an age range. My autistic son is eleven and still sometimes chooses toys geared for younger children, and that’s okay. When I saw the Sneaky Squirrels, I knew he was going to love it because he loves squirrels. What I love is that it helps him with his hand eye coordination and his fine motor skills. At eleven, these are still things he has to work on daily.
