Parents always ask what toys they can get their children to help them learn better in the classroom. There are so many toys available, it’s hard to just pick a few. However, there are several available to parents and kids that are fun and also have amazing learning and brain-building benefits. It can be difficult to sift through hundreds of toys at the store, so it’s great to keep a few things in mind.
- Not all toys are equal when offering learning benefits.
- The popular toys aren’t always the best for learning.
- Brain-building and sensory toys don’t have to break the bank.
As you look in stores, remember to find toys for your children that enhance and stimulate their gross and fine motor development, vestibular systems, hand-eye coordination and sensory systems. Sensory toys are by far some of my favorites because they are versatile and provide several benefits combined into one toy.
Sensory toys, along with gross and fine motor toys, typically provide the sensory input children need who struggle with attention, focus and behavior issues.
They also will enhance your child’s ability to write and hold their pencil correctly. Toys that help the vestibular systems and hand-eye coordination will help children with balance and coordination, reading (tracking words on a page), copying instructions from the chalkboard to their paper, getting their thoughts down on paper and they will also improve their auditory, which is used for following instructions and processing the information the teacher is teaching.
Here are 30 of our favorite brain-building and sensory toys, but there are many others that will do wonders for your children.
