Educational games for the preschool age youngster have come a long way since the sock puppet!
At a pre-k level, kids can start learning about the sciences and the arts…and love every minute of it. They can also just enjoy some good old-fashion family time with a “memory” or “counting” board game.
Listed below are five online stores that feature their own distinctive line of preschool education games. So let the games begin for eager little minds.
Stimulate young minds
Mind Ware is a fun introduction to math concepts and brainteasers for young preschoolers. Their “brain” toys and games stimulate young minds and help prepare kids for the coming school years. Their games include bright colors and shapes to challenge their senses and build reasoning skills. Who knew that building the foundation of mathematics could be so much fun!
Early learning through art
Take your child beyond the 3 R’s! Met Kids offers an innovative way to tap into the young artist that buds inside each preschooler. Their hands-on art toys and games lets toddlers explore the world around them while building agility and coordination skills. From puzzles featuring “child-friendly” works of art to an Egyptian Senet game table, a young child’s imagination is expanded to find the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Time tested toys
Nasco Early Learning encourages learning through dramatic play and old game favorites such as “Cootie.” You’ll find other favorites you enjoyed as a kid like “Candyland” and “Memory.” Your preschooler will have just as much fun as you did when growing up. The best part it is – it is quality time you can spend with your child. Some of the old classics just can’t be replaced with new electronic gadgets or television.
Green toys and games
Julabug is for the eco-conscious parent looking for preschool education games that take “going green” to the next level. Even these magnetic building blocks have been constructed from a sustainable sourced and harvested hardwood with non-toxic water base finishes. (Whew…that’s a mouthful!) So if organic and eco-friendly products are high on your list, Julabug is the store for you.
Games and puzzles
Lots of learning
Puzzles and preschool games from Maukilo European Toys build color and shape recognition and memory skills. Preschoolers respond to bright colors and anything they can touch and manipulate, so look for large pieces and engaging shapes. Combining luck with skill is a great wait to teach sportsmanship and social skills as well.
