1. Magna-Tiles make a great addition to your Construction Space. They are great for open ended building. They also help children develop Math, Science, Spatial and Tactile Skills.
2. This Melissa and Doug 60-Piece Standard Blocks set is a great staple for your Construction Space.
3. Bristle Blocks are great for open ended building fun and are easy for small hands to assemble.
4. This Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! set is a great building toy to encourage engineering as well as fine motor play.
5. These Pretend and Play Community Workers from Lakeshore Learning are a great addition to your space.
6. I love these high quality Jumbo Forest Animals from Learning resources. They also have several other sets to choose from.
7. In addition to providing transportation fun, this Melissa and Doug Traffic Signs and Vehicles set also comes with recommended extension activities for even more educational play.
When the weather starts to turn, it's best to have a few activities in your back pocket.
To get the silly's out you can try dancing to some fun music, or playing some old fashion games like musical chairs or limbo! Consider having a parade (complete with instruments and costumes).
Even when the weather turns cold there are still quite a few fun activities you can do outside-so bundle up and have some fun!
