Creativity and Self-Expression
Traditional wooden toys from Canterbury Toy Shop can be a wonderful way for children to express their creativity. Most children love to paint and draw and the process of creating images in this way helps them to develop their hand-eye coordination and share their thoughts and feelings.
The adjustable wooden easel from Canterbury Toy Shop is one of the traditional wooden toys( http://www.canterburytoyshop.com/toy_cart/general_information/traditional_wooden_toys ) that every young child will enjoy. They will be able to create as many masterpieces as they want, with their paints and crayons easily accessible on the tray. Make sure you have extra room on the fridge for all of their works of art!
Spatial Awareness and Motor Skills
Toddlers go through many important learning stages where they figure out how the world around them works. One of the key developmental steps for a toddler is when they learn how to stack wooden blocks and build a tower. Children love doing this and will stack the blocks over and over again, giggling with glee when they topple over.
Wooden blocks from Canterbury Toy Shop are a safe and durable choice for young toddlers who are developing these spatial awareness and fine motor skills. They have no sharp edges, they are non-toxic and their weight makes them easy to stack.
Problem Solving Skills
One of the best traditional wooden toys( http://www.canterburytoyshop.com/ ) for developing problem solving skills is the classic wooden puzzle. Children love to figure out how all of the colourful and oddly shaped pieces of the puzzle fit together and they get a true sense of accomplishment when they put the entire image together.
When you are choosing a puzzle from Canterbury Toy Shop for your child, make sure that you select one which is the appropriate age range for their developmental level. A puzzle which is too easy will not provide your child with a learning experience and one that is too hard will simply leave them frustrated.
Imagination and Role Play
One of the other important ways that children learn is through imaginative play and role play, such as playing house, creating an imaginary store, or pretending to be a fire-fighter, airplane pilot, doctor, police officer, chef, or other role. When children create imaginary scenarios in this way they are learning about the world of human interaction.
There are many traditional wooden toys at Canterbury Toy Shop which are perfect for role play, such as wooden kitchens and baking sets for little chefs and workbenches with hammers and wrenches for budding mechanics.
These are just a few of the ways that traditional wooden toys from Canterbury Toy Shop will stimulate the learning and development of your child!
