The holiday season is here! Are you looking for gift ideas for your children that will also help them develop skills? This list includes some of our favorite games and toys for our preschool children. We stuck with games available from toy stores and department stores- not “therapy” toys – so they are easy to find and will blend in with other holiday presents. Plus, everything on this list is under $25!

Click on the name of the game for a link to the manufacturer’s website. We also listed the underlying skills that can be addressed during play. Have fun!
