We all want to encourage our kids to play and have fun. But something we don’t always consider is if their play time is educational. For small children learning is crucial, and it should be a component of all play times. Learning new concepts, words and developing hand eye coordination and cognitive ability can all be part of play time. All you need is the right toys and games. Here are some great ideas to get your little ones on the right track. You can trust that that they are both fun and educational.
Playmobil is a much loved Classic
Playmobil is a much loved classic game. It is like Lego but Playmobil has pieces that are larger. They come in a great range of different sets and themes. This year’s range includes a farm set complete with tractors, silos, barns, cows, sheep, pigs and more. Put all the pieces together and build your own farm! It is a great way for children to learn how to put things together and it also inspires their creativity. The pieces are interchangeable, meaning that you can take pieces form one Playmobil get and use them another.
Other Play Mobil sets include the Catamaran set. Your child can put together a catamaran, complete with sails and dolphins. Playmobil is great for kids playing by themselves, with friends or with Mum and Dad! Ideal for boys and girls, it is also suitable for a wide age range. Like Lego, some people never grow out of it!
