What are some toys my preschooler can play with that will also help him learn?

If you have a preschooler, then you certainly have a fair supply of toys in your house. Toys are great for entertaining children, but the right kind of toys can also help your preschooler learn. Here is my list of the top 10 toys that will help promote learning for your preschooler.

Top 10 Learning Toys for Preschool Children - Moms Have Questions Too

Zoob Junior

Little Bear got a set of these for Christmas last year and I am constantly amazed at the creations he comes up with.

Pattern Blocks

Check out our Pattern Block Activity Pack (only $1.99!) for some awesome pattern block mats and other pattern block activities.

Math Links

I bought these just to use with our preschool curriculum, but my kids have surprised me by playing with them often. Review with ways to play coming soon.

Flat Marble Alphabet

These are super fun and a great tool for a preschooler who is learning letters.

Number Puzzles

These puzzles are self-correcting which means Little Bear can entertain himself for long amounts of time sorting and putting these puzzles together.

Color Cubes and Cards

We have never played with these, but they are on our list of toys to purchase. I love the spatial reasoning that they provide along with the building aspect.

Alphabet Stamps

These are great for preschoolers who aren’t great at forming letters, but still want to “write.” Check out our Pre-Primer Sight Word Curriculum (only $9.99 and includes tons of activities for all 30 Dolch Pre-Primer words) for more ways to use alphabet stamps.

Boggle Jr.

This is a great tool for beginning spelling, but it’s still simple enough for preschoolers.

Do-a-Dot Markers

We LOVE do-a-dot markers. Check out my review here.

Books

There are way too many wonderful books out there to list them all. Reading to your child every day is one of the best ways you can teach him. Here are just a few of our favorite books for preschoolers:
