math game for toddler

Getting the appropriate toy gift for my 4 years old is always a struggle.

I know most parents deal with the same issue, and often are times, I want something with a blend of everything, I want them to learn how to be creative, I want something educational, and also want them to have fun at the same time.

It’s an apparent struggle that I deal with whenever I want to get them a present.

This is what this post is all about, a compilation of 50 educational toy gifts for 4 year olds. I have written this with the hope that it will make the process easy for parents out there.

Children develop at a different pace, but many more than average learn so much between the age of 4 which contributes significantly to what they become and unsurprisingly.

Many essential skills, values, and system build up are learned, harnessed and developed at this point in a human’s life as several changes begin to occur physically, mentally and socially.

It’s a known fact though that children learn so much more from Play, Art and fun things that they do if any other means is deployed. This is why I take cognizance of my kids’ play environment, tools, toys, and all playthings.
