The holidays will soon be upon us, and it can be challenging to find fun yet educational, non-electronic gifts for school-aged children.
Traditional toys stimulate the mind in ways electronics can’t by incorporating the senses, exercising cognitive creativity and problem solving, and encouraging the development of interpersonal dynamics with peers and caregivers.
When an extended family member wishes to buy gifts, they may ask you for ideas, leaving you drawing a blank at recommendations. That’s why we’ve listed ten of our favorite educational toys for elementary-aged kids that will guarantee smiles and plenty of mental stimulation.
When children play and explore, they learn in the most natural ways. At Apollo Academy, our students use all of their senses to understand concepts and use them in real-world ways. For more information on our engaging approach, which blends modern technology, real-world projects, the Socratic method and a learner-driven environment, please schedule a call today! We are currently accepting applications and enrolling families to join us for the 2022-2023 academic year.
