2. Wooden Register- As you know, we've been learning all about numbers this spring & the obvious next step is math, I thought this cash register would be a playful way to start talking about addition, subtraction, money, as well as all of the life skills that come with saving, paying, and stewardship. You know I only like wooden toys so that was one of the main attractions to this register, but I also like this one because of the wooden register options, this one came with the play money and the little "scanner". We've already got plenty of wooden food (this set & this set) that he will be able to "buy", so I think that this register will make learning even more fun.
3. Safety Scissors- Dutch hasn't discovered scissors yet. This totally shocks me. I don't know how we've been so effective at hiding them for this long. This semester we've worked on tracing with writing utensils, but I think adding the skill of following a line while learning to cut will be fun. These scissors only cut paper; and it's true because I tried to cut other things around the house, including my own hair!
4. Wooden Doctor Kit- I got this kit for him back in February when I wrote a unit on the human body for our homeschool (which I will share here soon, with lots of freebies!) We've started going through that unit and I think he will like this hand-on application for learning about the body and how to care for it in a healthy manner.
I think he's going to really enjoy these gifts (I know I will hehe).
What other gifts would you recommend for this mama of an almost THREE year old?
