Welcome to the Play Kits for 3-year-olds

Welcome to the “year of the self.”

At age 3, your child is beginning to understand that they’re a distinct individual. They may start to use the pronoun “I” and express strong preferences about everything from food to clothing. They’re likely more aware now of both their own emotions and the feelings of others. You may see them role-play different feelings during pretend play as they practice ways to cope with big emotions.

Letters and numbers are starting to make more sense to your child, too. Through play, you can help them explore letter sounds, counting, and sequencing, all concepts that will eventually help them read, write, and do math.

The 3-year-old Play Kits are designed to help you guide your child through all these new discoveries. These open-ended playthings, puzzles, games, and real-life tools all support your child’s development during the “year of the self.”
