Toddler Favorites: Educational Materials

I recently shared some of my favorite toddler books and series. You can check that out here: Favorite Toddler Books. I thought I would continue sharing some of my favorite items for my son. Today I wanted to share some educational materials that we have loved and been using non stop. Stay tuned for other items!

What is your child loving right now? I would love to check it out!


We love puzzles and have a block of our day that is dedicated to puzzles and books. I like to have variety to continuously switch things up and make it fun. I have really enjoyed the Melissa and Doug brand. We use the ladybug letters and alphabet puzzle in our letter lessons, so we tend to do other puzzles during our “puzzle time” to have some variety. Here are are few of our favorites!
