Choosing Great Toys For Your 6 Year Old

When choosing toys for your six year old, it is important that you select toys that are age appropriate as well as safe. Six year old children are entering elementary school and have advanced beyond many preschool activities. For example, when it comes to arts and crafts, a 6 year old may feel comfortable using a pair of scissors and it is up to the parent to decide how much supervision they will give the child. However, it is recommended that you always supervise children when using scissors or other sharp objects, but the point is that a six year old is in fact capable of using scissors by themselves.

The advancement in a six year old’s motor skills enable them to enjoy many other toys that they previously couldn’t experience. Here are some great guidelines to use when choosing toys for 6 year olds.

First, if you are choosing arts and craft products, be sure that the toys are non-toxic. Six year olds are developing their writing technique and the use of crayons, scissor, and glue greatly develops their motor skills and improves their writing.

You may also find that building blocks are very appropriate for the six year old child. Whether these are wooden blocks, Lincoln logs, or legos children love to build with these blocks and their accessories.

Since reading, writing, and phonics skills are being introduced to the 6 year old, educational games such as Sing, Spell, Read, and Write are a good choice. You may also discover that in addition to these types of educational toys, memory and sequencing games are also greatly beneficial.

Imaginative play is also a very important part of the six year old’s overall development. You can enhance your child’s creative development by encouraging them to play with puppets. A puppet theater is a great addition to ensure that your child has a wonderful time and is lost in their imaginative world.

Age appropriate puzzles are also an excellent choice for the 6 year old child. You can select puzzles by their age level and as your child advances in their skills, move on to more complex puzzles. Puzzles are also a great way to introduce educational concepts in a fun manner.

Some other popular choices for toys for the six year old child include the classic toys, Slinky, the games Candyland and Chutes and Ladders, Lace up cards, dress up toys, doll houses, erector sets, tool sets, and the game Pick Up Sticks.
