Developmental milestones for a 5-year-old

Is your child a kindergartner and soon to become a first grader? Time flies! Five year olds typically communicate effectively and their sentences can be really long. They should be able to tell stories. Their social development is impressive: they can tell when somebody acts right or wrong and can express their feelings. They like to play with friends. They are well developed physically, can run, jump, climbe, and catch the ball. You can notice that they are well coordinated. It is important to engage in sport activities that support gross motor skills. Various activities such as drawing, writing, cutting, playing with jigsaw puzzles boost fine motor skills. It is important for future writing. Their imagination expands and the role of pretend play is bigger. While choosing a right toy for a 5 year old, remember, that children still love and need to spend valuable time with caregivers. After all, you are the best guide for your child!

What toys to choose for 5-year-olds?

At Banana Panda we know how important the role of play is. Childrens’ specialists and psychologists agree: at this age it is important to cut down the use of electronic toys as much as possible. Instead, play sports, assemble puzzles, read, play games and use creative books, count and write. Our beautiful educational and creative toys allow you to support  all the developing skills while playing and having so much fun. They are made of certified and safe materials, and have an exceptional educational value.
