Educational Toys for 3 year Olds (Tactical Tuesday)

Welcome back to the second #TacticalTuesday of 2018 with Vicky and I 

If you have not joined in with this linky or need a reminder the idea behind the linky is that you share with us your Tactical Parenting posts/hacks for the week. This can be crafts, recipes, meal plans, reviews, parenting posts etc. Both old and new posts are welcome in the link up all you have to do is grab the badge at the end of the post and the rules are also stated below too. 


When it comes to toys for Blake I like to not only find ones that are fun but also educational too. I thought I would share with you some of our favourite ones in case you are in need of some ideas. 

A fab toy that helps children to develop fine motor skills, counting and colour recognition. This counting and sorting activity set includes 60 fruit counters (seven fruits in five different colours), 22 cm durable plastic pie, removable divider, three double-sided sorting cards, two jumbo tweezers and activity guide.

The set contains 27 wooden lacing beads ideal for promoting counting, shape recognition, hand-eye coordination, and creativity. The beads and laces are stored in a durable handy tray. 

Set contains 120 shapes and 5 double sided boards with design templates to fill. Children can make many designs of their own too. The set helps teach children three and older matching and sorting skills, colour recognition, geometric shapes, counting, and beginning math skills. Fitting the pieces onto the wooden pattern boards helps develop fine motor skills, problem-solving skills, concentration, and memory. Place them, trace them, stack them, or sort them -- there are endless ways to play with this set that promote creativity and independent learning while making beautiful patterns and works of art. 




Includes 6 skill pieces and puzzle board. This toy is great for encouraging independent dressing skills such as buckles, buttons, laces and snaps and zips as well as fine motor skills. 

Orchard Toy's Games/Puzzles

We own many Orchard toys games and puzzles such as this match and count jigsaw, where do I live game and spotty dogs game to name only a few. 


Another toy that is ideal for fine motor skills, counting and colour recognition. Comes with the drawstring backpack to easily store all the pieces. 


A perfect toy for learning date, day, time, seasons, weather, month etc its an ideal teaching aid.

  3. The tools look better quality than a load I saw at Christmas while shopping. Aside from that, I am a firm believer in toys that are parent/child rather than a learning toy where the little one sits alone.

  5. We love the puzzle boards Eryn is only 1.5 years atm so she is at that stage where she is figuring it all out. Anything that is fun and educational gets our vote.

  9. I remember peg boards from my own childhood, I used to have so much fun playing with them! Even though I'm by no means a child now, I still have a love for a good jigsaw puzzle, probably because I had so many fun ones as a kid! Looks like your little ones have Sim fantastic resources to learn and play with!

  21. I love a sneakily educational toy. I'm all for getting in as many as possible before they get to an age where they realise they are learning and run the other way!

  22. I do like games and toys that encourage thinking and can encourage all kinds of ideas. The sorting pie is exactly that, I know my son would utterly love it. He has started to learn maths at school, and this is ideal for showing all kinds of those sums that are sometimes better to see visually than just as numbers on paper.

  23. We love Melissa and Doug and Orchard toys at pre-school. They always last really well

  24. I loved lacing and stacking toys when my girls were teeny. I always found that Orchard toys stayed in good condition to for ages rather than cheap & nasty plastic toys.
