What Do 3 to 4 Year Olds Play With?

What Do 3 to 4 Year Olds Play With?

People often wonder what toys are best to engage your 3 year old, before turning 4 and heading off to school. Here are some of our favourite toys and activities to aid your 3-4 year old's development.

Outdoor Play:

Outdoor play is so beneficial for kids in the early-years. It helps develop their imagination, problem solving, confidence and even their immune system!

Liewood have a brilliant selection of outdoor toys and games that can entertain and engage your child for hours, including the Bow & Arrow Set, Wooden Golf Set and Silicone Exploration set.

Messy Play:

A sure way to keep your child entertained and engaged is introducing some messy play set ups.

A lovely invitation to play could be a huge piece of paper or cardboard box and a selection of Newclay Finger Paint and Glitter Paint. We love these for messy play as they can be used with hands, feet, paint brushes, sticks and best of all, they are non-toxic and washable!

Educational Toys:

Setting up invitations to play that not only keep your kids busy but also help develop some key skills is so important. You can find lots of educational toys in store.

We love The Wee Gallery Lacing cards for helping to develop kid's dexterity and hand-eye co-ordination. They have so many combinations of colours and characters, they will keep your child's imagination on its toes!

The Little Dutch Tap Art Set is another really lovely way to engage your child's brain while they use the wooden shapes and figures to create a design and hammer into place.

Role Play Toys:

We love role play toys here at Soren's House! Role play allows children to use their imagination and act out either a fictional story or something they see in every day life. It helps to develop confidence, imagination, communication and problem solving.

We stock a HUGE range of role play toys; some of our favourites include the Plan Toys Doll Feeding SetLiewood Dentist Play set, Konges Slojd Wooden Toy Barber Set and the Little Dutch Wooden Play Mini Kitchen and Wooden Cutting Vegetables.
