Best Learning Tools For Preschoolers
Looking for the best learning tools for preschoolers?
If you’re anything like me, you are always on the lookout for learning resources for your child.
Is my child prepared for school? This is a thought that keeps me up at night. My husband has had to endure hours of listening to me stress about this. I am constantly asking mothers I know with older children in school to tell me all the DETAILS. Tell me exactly what I have to do to give my kid a jump start.
I know I worry way too much about this. But I can’t even count how many times I have been told by other mamas that kindergarten is the new first grade.
So it definitely eases my mind when I find things that my daughter loves and is learning at the same time.
A few years ago, my husband and I were discussing the possibility of homeschooling her. Of course, I dove into a black hole of things I could put in our homeschooling classroom. We have since changed our minds and decided to send her to school.
But we do have a learning room in our house!
I love the room so much I sometimes get upset that she won’t be homeschooled. But most days I am fine with our decision. Mama is looking forward to some me time.
We have all the things on this list. They are fun, educational and preschooler approved!

Here Are 12 Of The Best Learning Tools For Preschoolers
Puzzles are great for kids of all ages. They are especially perfect for helping little ones with their fine motor skills. Not to mention it requires them to concentrate and practice patience. This puzzle of the United States is our current favorite.
2) Cash Register
This is a great one for introducing basic math skills. Kids who love to role play will also really enjoy running their own store with this cash register. Just the other day Brooklyn charged me $56.00 for some bread and milk. Her store is high end apparently. This is one of the best educational toys.
3) Educational Insights: Hot Dots Jr.
This is a great educational tool that makes learning fun. Kids will love the talking pen that gives them encouragement along the way. Reading, math, and science are just a few of the sets they offer.
I also love that this is a gift that can be used for years. It would be perfect for handing down to younger siblings.
4) VTech Touch and Learn Activity Desk
This is another one of those things that will get years of use. Kids will learn colors, numbers, letters, and so much more. It comes with five activity pages but there are some really fun expansion packs. It also converts to an art station. This is nice for when kids need to switch it up a little. This desk has been a favorite in our house for years.
5) LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Magnetic Letter Set
Stick this to the fridge and let little ones explore on their own. This is great for teaching children the alphabet as well as letter names and sounds. It also sings ‘The Alphabet Song’ and ‘Wheels on the Bus’ which are big hits in most houses. Check it out here.
6) Melissa and Doug Lacing Beads
This comes with 30 wooden beads and 2 laces. This is great for color recognition, fine motor skills, and sequencing. The beads come in five different shapes and are perfect for little hands.
7) Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Quiz it Pen
Kids who are obsessed with Mickey Mouse will love this set of interactive learning books. There are 4 books that cover topics from letters and numbers to identifying different emotions and even a little Spanish.
8) School Zone Preschool Workbook
This workbook is just awesome. It can make a huge difference in giving kids an early start on understanding concepts they will need to know in school.
9) School Zone Flash Cards
There is nothing fancy about these. Flash cards are a tried and true method for teaching kids.
10) Matching Games
These are great for memory skills as well as getting kids in the habit of taking turns. We have had this game for a couple of years and it continues to be a favorite.
11) Melissa and Doug Calendar
This is awesome for introducing months of the year, days of the week and seasons. There are also magnets for different emotions and holidays. This calendar is great for giving kids an idea of what morning circle time may be like at school.
12) Match It! Spelling and Mathematics
How cool are these? They are mini-puzzles that help teach early reading skills. The mathematics set is my daughter’s top pick. I love seeing how proud she is of herself when she matches them all together.
