The Ultimate Kids Gift Ideas - Best Gifts for a 3 Year Old
At 3, our little babies are no more. They are big now, and they will remind you when you forget. They become aware of their place in the family dynamic.
So much to be had at this stage, and of course the odd tantrum! Lots of changes at this age as they may start 3-yo-kinder programs. They are counting, singing their ABCs, learning so many new things. They are better at communicating but still get frustrated when they are not listened to. They are still very physically active and love the outside pursuits of climbing, running, swinging, sliding. But they can now sit and play a game which involves a bit more of a storyline and build a story-based game with their older siblings or parents. Creating, drawing and pretend play all ramp up at this age. Puzzles and games as well as the other creative pursuits are great. And they love books, especially reading along to their favourite bits. They are also ‘big’ now and can help especially with delicate things that can get broken easily.
