Toys & Tools for Practical Life

Toys & Tools for Practical Life

One thing I've noticed with my toddler and other pre-schoolers we know is that they love to imitate life and help out, even if the "helping" is pretend play. The child-size tools and toys we have in our home get a lot of use, and it's been great to role-play with him. It never ceases to amaze me how much young ones so happily copy parents in our sometimes mundane daily tasks (I know, just wait until they are older!).
