The Early Elementary Gift Guide:
The Best Toys for Your Child's Development
As the holiday season approaches, you might be considering what to gift the children in your life. When it comes to children in early elementary school (children roughly ages 5-7 years old), the best toys will provide opportunities to reinforce spatial reasoning skills, encourage creative thinking, increase problem solving skills, improve planning skills, and practice fine and gross motor skills. We have created the Early Elementary Gift Guide of our favorite toys specifically for families and therapists looking for developmentally appropriate play opportunities for their little ones! As always, young children should be closely supervised by an adult for safety while playing with any toy.
If you are looking for gift guides for children of other ages, you can find those here!
