The Benefits of Stocking a Variety of Toys

When preschool home schooled children play with early learning toys and other materials, they learn about their world, themselves, and others. Through the manipulation of materials and toys, children figure out how things work and how to solve problems, as well as build muscle control.

You should have a variety of toys and materials on hand to augment your home school preschool curriculum, including paint, blocks, and imagination toys like a puppet stage or kitchen area. A variety ensures that you promote the development of the whole child and not simply target specific developmental areas at the expense of others.

Furthermore, choose toys that appeal to your children, as an early learning toy is only effective if the child plays with it.
