Natural Toys & Imaginative Play

IMG_8021Before my oldest nephew was born, my sister researched the benefits of natural, wooden toys and how they encourage imaginative and creative play. She and her husband were passionate about raising their children with music, wooden blocks, books, puzzles, and lots of outdoor play. IMG_8035IMG_8031Encouraged by this, we decided to foster a similar upbringing with Everett. To me, there is something so beautiful about wooden and cloth toys that are in their natural state or dyed with vegetable juices. They make simple sounds with little bells embedded in them and by being clanked together.  IMG_8022And some time the toys that are the most fun, aren’t intended to be toys at all!IMG_8056IMG_8037

What are some of your favorite children’s toys?
