Educational Toys and Books For Toddler

Here are some of Peter’s favorite toys and books! He turned two years old in May, and since that time I have been trying to incorporate more educational toys and books into our morning routine together. We start out the day with a short prayer, breakfast, and then work on our Morning Center together. Our Morning Center is from my friend Jess’ Etsy shop, ‘GatherGrowJoe’. Click HERE to see the Morning Center.

Twenty-Six Letters to Heaven is also a great resource that I have been using throughout our day. It contains so many ideas for crafts and projects along with prayers, art activities, and recipes for each letter of the alphabet. It’s a book that we will definitely be using over the next couple years!

Just click on the image below to shop our favorite toddler toys and books. I would love to hear about your favorite educational toys and books for your children. Please share! We are always looking for new ways to learn!
