Taryn Mohrman, senior editor of Woman’s Day, and Laurie Schacht, Toy Insider Mom, are here to tell us all about toys to boost children’s confidence in areas that may be intimidating at school. S.T.E.M, or science, technology, engineering and mathematics, subjects are being incorporated into children’s world outside of the classroom by using these toys that make challenging subjects a lot less scary.
Even the youngest tots can get a head start with the Little Scholar by School Zone, which is filled with educational apps for ages 3-7. It has everything from fun characters to keep children interested to parental controls to help track the child’s learning.
“Engineering is not just a scary subject for a lot of kids but especially one that girls don’t tend to move forward into,” says Schacht. To solve this, gift your little girl the GoldieBlox and the Builder’s Survival Kit. For ages 6 and up, any girl will love this fun take on reading a classic story and using over 190 pieces to build things, all while instilling a sense of confidence in learning.
No matter what age your little one is, these gifts will be things they love to play with and are able to learn from. Find out the rest of their great suggestions in the video above.
