Pre-School (3-5 years)

These Pre-school toys are perfect for preschoolers age 3 years old, 4 years old, and 5 years old.
Preschoolers learn best through play, and the Preschool mind is primed, ready, and able to learn new things with these handmade goodies. Ages 3-5 is a time where little ones are pushing their boundaries, and are beginning to explore the worlds outside of their own little bubble. They are able to understand simple concepts such as the alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes and are looking for opportunities to master their quickly growing skills. Cultivate this excitement for learning every chance you get with conversation, song, building, games, toys that strengthen these skills. Allow for some independent play opportunities to explore these concepts through experimentation. You will be amazed by your little one's growing imagination and awed by the words the choose, the stories they tell, the ways they play, and at how quickly they learn.

    Sensory Box - Explore With Me Sensory Bin Starter Set

Add tactile manipulatives to make it a homemade surprise or seasonally appropriate toy.

     

    Our Maker's Description:

    Introducing the Explore With Me Sensory Box tool kit – an invaluable addition to hands-on learning. Oh how I love the open-endedness of a sensory bin. I love how many different skills can be practiced with a little bit of imagination and a box of "stuff". I always enjoy creating these seasonal boxes, it's a lot of fun for me to make - and how I love watching my little one’s excitement when she sits down to play – it’s like opening a present. It’s therapeutic and just plain fun.

    My little explorer really enjoys playing with different nick-knacks in a tub filled with something tactile - I mean, who wouldn't? It's a great way to add texture to play while exploring a subject through excavation and discovery. Sometimes she mulls through the bin on her own and sometimes we work on it together, incorporating more conversation as she explores. Either way she is learning some very important lessons: physics, gravity, volume, shape, size, sound, how things fit together, similar and different, size relation...the list goes on.

    There are so many ways to use, play, and explore with the contents in this kit. A wooden box is the window to sensorial play and imaginative excavation. Let your little one’s creativity go wild with the pouring, scooping, pinching, placing, picking, poking, and playing opportunities this learning box inspires. Add a smidgen of playful thought and create a unique and magical Explore With Me experience at each and every sit-down. This kit contains the basics and can be used over and over again – just change the ingredients and you can create a whole new learning adventure.

    Some ideas for something tactile:
    Rice
    Uncooked Pasta
    Sand
    Rocks
    Beans
    Beads
    Lentils
    Un-popped Popcorn


    What’s You Get:
    - 1 wooden box measuring ( 8.5" x 8" x almost 2" deep ) to hold all your tools & can be used as the actual “Sensory Bin”
    - 2 different wooden bowls
    - 2 different wooden scoops
    - 2 different wooden canisters with lids

    * All of my creations were made with your little one in mind. Each piece was designed to nurture child development through open-ended play. These pieces can be used to broaden your little one's understanding and knowledge of our world and were created as early educational toys. I am inspired by the teachings of Montessori; the natural beauty of Waldorf; and incorporate a myriad of other learning-through-play philosophies when I design. It makes me smile to see my made-with-love pieces being toted for use as preschool toys and in natural play settings. Thank you for helping me support little minds, bodies, and imaginations through engaging, hands-on play and discovery.

    Seasonally appropriate play activities that allow little ones to learn about changes in their world are so much fun to put together but often take a bit of time! There are many ways to expose your little explorer to the tidings of each season, but one of my favorites has always been building sensory bins. Sensory bins are the perfect pairing of learning through play with hidden lessons in volume, physics, science, experimentation, fine motor skill-building, imaginative play, counting, sorting, organizing, and categorizing.

     

    Let Mama May I take the guesswork (and time!) out of creating these tactile learning tools with our monthly Mama May I –Explore- Sensory Bin of the Month Kits. These pass-me-down play kits are sure to engage and delight the young learners in your life. Because they are self-contained, you can keep them easily catalogued and accessible for play-and-learn time at home or you can pick one up and tote it along for some quiet fun on the go. By the end of the subscription you will have a library of tools, themes, objects, and ideas your little archeologist is sure to dig!

    The first kit comes with a durable wooden box or container which can be used for all subsequent kits, to hide and seek manipulatives.

    Marvelously fun, engaging, and inspiring, each additional monthly kit will include the following components:

    Base material

    Basic Tool (at least one new tool to add to your Sensory Bin tool kit!)

    Sensory Objects that are seasonally relevant or thematic

    Ways to Play activity sheet (ideas on how to further connect through play)

     

    The Mama May I –Explore- Sensory Bin of the Month Club is the perfect milestone gift. A New kit will arrive at your loved one’s door every month for the duration of your subscription - 1, 3, 6, 9, or 12 months – such a thrill! These make a wonderful teacher, classroom, or school gift as well!

Help your little one better understand this crazy world of Numerals, Numbers, Counting, and Mathematics with this simple wooden Count With Me Play Set. Help deepen your little Mathematician's understanding of numbers 1-10 - both their numerals, written form, as well as what they represent. Stack up the circular coins to show the volume of what each numeral stands for...or lay the in a line - like a graph - to give a pictorial image of what all those numbers mean. Help build you little one's understanding of one-to-one ratios and number recognition while enhancing fine motor skills and playing with mathematics at play time. You can use the number cards as "money" or the coins as "change" while pretending to run a shop or restaurant. Our world is filled with numbers - let your little one explore it with these hands-on, open-ended play pieces.

    Each play set comes with:

    - 10 Number Boards - with both the numeral and number words written on them to support number recognition
    - 55 circular coins that can be stacked for better number comprehension - what does five look like stacked? What does 5 look like laid out flat? --- Enough coins to visualize all the Number Boards simultaneously
    - A wooden box for easy clean up and storage

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    - Each Number Board measures approximately 3" square
    - Each circular coin measures approximately 1" in diameter

    *All the pieces are left in their natural wooden state. I suppose you could paint them if you wanted to, but I would suggest using all the same color so that when little ones are relating the numbers to one another they can more easily visual the difference between them.

    The pieces in the Count With Me Play Set are small and could pose a choking hazard. Children should always be supervised while at play.

    Holiday time is an EXTREMELY busy time of year for me. Due to the chaos of production, emails, craft shows, and daily operations, I feel compelled to build Special Time into our daily rhythm to spend with my little ones. I began doing a Book-A-Day leading up to Christmas a few years ago. The first year I thought it would be fun to try something new; schedule quality play time; and add literacy to our busy Winter days. Now my children have come to see this series of reading, making, & doing as part of a beautiful tradition of playing together. The remember so many of the memories we have made while doing this December series. We usually add some special “field trips” to see our favorite Holiday sights - a trip to the Theater - or a ride on the Polar Express Train.
    I have been collecting Holiday books since I was a child. Some of these are childhood 
    favorites; some I’ve found at Thrift stores along the way; while others I have purchased specifically for this project.  Feel free to use what’s here as inspiration, take what inspires you, and leave the rest. Wishing you and yours a magical and lovely Holiday Season filled with connection, play, learning, and beautiful memories.
    The calendar I created has many built-in sensory skills mingled throughout the days to inspire different learners and build different skills. Below is the Legend for the COMPLETE calendar accentuating different types of activities. Feel free to add your own books, activities, crafts, sensory play ideas. I would love to see what you and your little ones create this Holiday Season. 
    Enjoy!
