My daughter will soon be 5 years old. Her tastes and interests are changing every day. This applies to food, and cartoons, and toys. I select the toys for my daughter carefully.
In truth, many familiar mothers do not understand me. They buy a hundredth doll of dubious quality just because it is being asked for by a daughter. And in the direction of developing toys do not even look, considering their acquisition is not at all mandatory.
I think otherwise. Dolls, of course, are useful for the development of girls. They teach to be kind, responsible and caring. But the development must be versatile! Alone dolls here can not do.
I started buying books for my daughter when she was one and a half years old. Of course, she did not know how to read. I read it to her, husband and grandparents.
Reading, we taught her to memorize heroes of fairy tales and jokes. They asked to show where the chicken is, where the egg, bear, bunny. Daughter showed with interest. So we trained her memory.
A daughter very quickly learned to show not only animals and fairy-tale heroes, but also parts of the body – pens, legs, eyes, ears. With books, our training was easy and fun.
The books we bought for our daughter, from the age of 3, were no less important for development. We learned letters and numbers from books, learned to build sentences from the pictures we saw. In addition, reading books to children develops their imagination, perseverance and attentiveness.
Designers and cubes develop fine motor skills and imagination in our child. We have several boxes at home with different types of designers: Lego, magnetite and contour designer.
My daughter builds houses, shops, turrets. And still collects the whole city. There are several streets, houses, fenced with fences, benches, towers, cars. And this is all from the designer!
Dishes and other utensils
Also for children’s development it is necessary that the interior items be present in the game. Our daughter often plays with dolls. She is all for real! There is a kitchen where there is a table and chairs. On the table are dishes – plates, cups, spoons. There is a washing machine and iron.
In the doll’s bedroom there is a bed with linens and a table with a mirror. In the closet a lot of clothes. I sew clothes myself. It takes a little time. And the daughter dolls have both winter and summer clothes! Playing in this way, the daughter learns accuracy, fantasizes, takes care.
Kits for children’s creativity
When my daughter turned 4, I began to buy her various creative kits. She likes bead and bead sets. They develop fantasy, teach perseverance.
My daughter so quickly puts them on a string! Only half an hour, and the next decoration is ready! Such crafts daughter gives relatives and girls from the group in the garden.
Box with pencils
Yes, yes, pencils, felt-tip pens, paints, plasticine – all this is useful for children’s development. My daughter and I are happy to sculpt and draw. We come up with vivid scenes. And we often organize exhibitions and contests, hanging pictures on the wall of the children’s room.
And what purchases do you make for the development of the baby? What does your child like to do?
