Explore Play Based Learning

Play time is important for all children, but it can also be a valuable time for them to learn new skills while having fun. Preschool reading books, colouring books for kids and activity books for 3-5 year olds are all a great way to promote play based learning.

What Is Play Based Learning

According to Dr. Peter Gray, your child learns a lot through play, whether it’s with colouring books for kids, from activity books for 3-5 year olds, or any other arts and crafts. Watch the informative video below and learn why play based learning is an important part of your child’s education.

Toby's ABC Preschool Activity Workbook

Toby’s ABC Preschool Activity Workbook is filled with a variety of engaging exercises that will captivate kids. This book is filled with various tracing exercises, number drills, and basic math concepts. All of the activities are designed to help with fine motor skill developement, pen control and hand eye coordination. To make the book even more fun, we have included on every second page a comment, joke or fact from Professor Mikegull that is garanteed to give you and your child a laugh or two.

Free Printable Crafts for Play Based Learning

There is no better or more stimulating way to exercise a child’s basic motor-skills and hand-eye coordination than with the help of activity books for 3-5 year olds, or other types of crafts where they can draw, paint colour and cut out.

We have created a few face masks that you can download, print out and give to your child to have fun with. Please feel free to download as many as you like, this section of our website will always be free. Once you have printed the images out your child can colour them in, and once they are done, they can cut them out to wear. 

Brain-Building Puzzle Games

If you want to teach a young child about the concept of a “whole” then there is no better way than to let them build a puzzle. This type of play-based learning also teaches them that each piece of the puzzle is a fraction of a bigger picture.

Building puzzles helps a child develop concentration, patience and goal setting in much the same way that finishing a picture in a colouring book for kids does. Possibly the most important thing that your child will learn from building a puzzle is a sense of achievement. This will contribute to their schooling later on.
