    Social & Emotional

    Toys for Social & Emotional Skills: Toys to help children feel secure as they talk about feelings or emotions by imitating family life, providing non-verbal channels for expression, or offering an open-ended exploration of everyday themes in creative ways.

    Children learn social and emotional skills in so many ways: gatherings with family, storybooks, time with friends, and, of course, through play! Imaginative playtime is an especially helpful tool for children who may resist talking about feelings or emotions; using certain toys and play activities lets them feel safe and confident as they share their thoughts with others. Caregivers can help by providing children with toys that help mimic family life, that express emotions in non-verbal ways, or that offer up open-ended opportunities for kids to explore everyday themes in creative ways. Being in a fun-filled, friendly environment also benefits emotional development, so support your child by playing together . . . and have fun!
