10 Best Christmas Gift Ideas for 3-4-Year-Olds in 2019
Congratulations! You made it through the terrible twos.
Your little person is now becoming more complex and you can now understand him or her a little better.
Because of this you probably have an idea of what their likes and dislikes are.
It’s therefore time to find them a perfect Christmas gift for 2019.
At All Things For Kids, we have been in this business for some time now and we have acquired tremendous knowledge in what kind of gifts are proven to earn you the best mum, dad, auntie, uncle, sister, brother, cousin or friend from a 3-4 year old.
When choosing the perfect Christmas gift for a 3-4-year-old, it is important to look at some of their developmental milestones.
You may have already noticed that the tantrums have reduced, they are becoming more social and are able to cooperate with their friends.
They may be able to say their name and age, speak about 200 words or more, answer simple questions, speak in sentences of five or six words and tell stories.
Another characteristic you’ll notice of a 3-4-year-old is they love to ask questions.
They ask about anything and everything.
Finding gifts that help them get a better understanding of some of their questions would therefore make a fantastic gift.
They’re also able to tell colors apart, be able to differentiate sizes and shapes, pretend and fantasize more creatively, sort objects by shape and color, tell parts of a story and complete age-appropriate puzzles.
For these reasons, it is quite easy to find Christmas gift ideas that will have them thrilled and contribute to their proper development into little human beings.
Factors To Consider When Choosing Christmas Gifts For 3-4-Year-Olds
Cognitive milestones. This refers to their ability to think, count, remember, reason and generally utilize their mental capacities.
This is when children become fond of asking several questions about why things are the way they are and this is a normal part of their development.
Christmas gifts that help them in this area are therefore recommended in order to nurture this very important part of their development.
- Movement milestones - A 3-4-year old should be able to walk up and down a staircase, kick or throw and catch a ball, run more confidently or ride a tricycle.
There are several gifts at All Things For Kids that would encourage them to keep developing in this area.
The ride on toys for example make amazing Christmas gifts for 3-4 year olds.
- Hand and finger skills. At this age their hands have become nimbler as they’re able to do things like stack up blocks of wood, write some capital letters, screw and unscrew jars, dress up on their own among many other activities.
This means that a nice wooden play set would make a great Christmas gift and encourage them to improve on their hand and finger skills as they play with the different parts of the set.
- Emotional and social milestones. At this stage 3-4-year-olds are becoming more independent emotionally as you will notice them having fewer tantrums.
They also begin to show affection to familiar friends and family.
However, don’t be alarmed if they also begin to have irrational fears such as a monster hiding under their bed.
This is the time to use their play time to encourage them to express themselves and utilize their imagination.
It is for this reason that doll houses and woodworks work bench toys are popular Christmas gifts in 2019 as they encourage play pretend and use of their imagination.
