5 Creative Christmas Gift Ideas for Preschoolers

5 Creative Christmas Gift Ideas for Preschoolers

The holiday season is approaching! We know that the thought of adding more toys to an already full playroom is not ideal.  

At Creative Learning Co.™, we believe setting aside a space for your preschooler’s open-ended and imaginative play will foster hours of independent play for your child. 

While some supplies are necessary, this type of play space isn’t meant to be cluttered with more and more toys. In this case, less is more. 

What is Open-Ended Play?  

Open-ended play is allowing your child to explore, observe, and discover all on their own. It is one of the greatest learning tools they can have.  

A few benefits of open-ended play include:  

  • Fine Motor Skills 
  • Letter and Number Identification 
  • Letter Sound Recognition 
  • Collaboration 
  • Communication 

Bonus: It’s easy entertainment too!
