Gift Guide for the Active Mind: Ages 3-6

Does your child have a mind with wheels that never seem to stop turning? I’m sure it is one of those qualities that you absolutely adore, however, you are probably constantly trying to find ways to engage them and keep them occupied in a constructive way. My 4 year old falls in this category. His mind NEVER STOPS. I am showing you some of his favorite types of toys, in addition, some that I have had the pleasure of seeing (and playing with), and that are on my own list of items I would love for my son! I am focusing on the 3-6 age range. At this age, children learn to manipulate information in a logical way. It is important to provide them with opportunities to manipulate toys, inspire creativity and critical thinking, and employ their imagination while allowing them to actively participate in their play.

This gift guide includes toys that inspire creativity, critical thinking, logic and active participation in play. Perfect for kids with very active minds!
