Wooden Bookends, Wooden Height Charts-How They Can Encourage A Child’s Learning
As young as six months a baby will enjoy gnawing away on wooden blocks and up to the age of three you can enjoy seeing the various things a toddler will do with these simple wooden toys. When a toddler becomes a little older wooden bookends and wooden height charts are excellent to continue to encourage learning.
Many young children enjoy wooden toys of different types and central to this enjoyment will also be the learning they experience as well as toys that are colourful. Wooden bookends can be a decorative tool in a child’s bedroom as well as helping teach your child about the importance of books.
A child who learns to respect books will have a better chance of wanting to read more stories and develop a thirst for knowledge. Children who are not fortunate enough to grow up in a house where books are plentiful can also crave them through their own natural instinct of wanting to learn. However wooden bookends are perfect for young children to learn to tidy away their books and it gives them the feeling that it is something that is their special place as well.
They can come in designs that are exciting to a child like wooden aeroplane bookends or animal ones such as wooden sheep bookends. Other lovely themes are wooden knights on horses, the jungle and landing in space bookends. These trigger the child’s imagination as well as being nice and colourful.
Ideally they should be bought as close as possible to when the child has his or her first book so that the excitement of reading and owning books can be further encouraged. With children it is amazing how a simple possession like this can make a difference.
Another idea which many children love are wooden height charts, which can add to the excitement of a child’s growth and is the perfect tool to encourage them to eat well so that they will grow up to be big and strong. As a sentimental parent you may enjoy marking this and keeping it for posterity; it could be part of one of those fun collections which when a serious girlfriend or boyfriend is brought home later in life, they can be shown, along with the baby photos!
A colourful wooden height chart can brighten a room as well as being fun for your child and you. Both the chart and the bookends are good opportunities to encourage learning in a child.
