I’ll be the first to admit that my kids are little techies.
Always wanting to use the computers, the mp3 players, our iPhones, whatever they can get their grubby little hands on…
And Brooke, though she’s even three, is the same way…she loves to play the educational apps that I’ve downloaded on my kindle for her.
But sometimes you just need to put the technology away and get out some good old fashioned toys, whether they be made of bright plastic or some trusty wooden toys.
Right now with Brooke, we’re trying to teach her animals…and even though she can see them on the computer or with a flash card, I think having little animal toys she can pick up and examine will help her learn even better….
I love this wooden animal set because Brooke also gets to work in some OT skills by stringing the toys! How cool is that?
What about you? Do you try to get your kids back to old school toys and away from technology?
