The countryside can be a fascinating place for children. There's always so much going on! Whether it's hedge cutters maintaining roadside hedges or farmers tending livestock or ploughing fields, there's always something fascinating for children to see. So why not encourage your little ones' love of the countryside and farming by giving them the opportunity to recreate those evocative farming moments at home?
So in today's blog, we thought we'd take a look that our SIKU farming toys and how your little ones can expand their interest in the countryside and develop a more imaginative form of play. Many children are restricted in their imaginative play by the desire to have the next big thing toy or video game. They don't get the opportunity to expand their imaginative worlds and reflect upon the real world of people and places.
SIKU toys are wonderful scaled-down versions of all the things your children see out in the country. From tractor SIKU toys and combine harvesters to bailers and cattle trailers, SIKU have everything needed to turn a patchwork rug or coloured carpet into a working farm! This will not only inspire their imaginations but help them to create their very own farming fantasy world.
These toys are suited to older children who are beginning to develop a real interesting in rural living. SIKU farm toys allow your children to recreate everything from ploughing fields to haymaking, seed drilling to fertilising. Getting your kids to play at farming is not only a great way to get them learning about the countryside but will also keep them occupy on those rainy afternoons.
So if you have a budding young farmer, why not get them started on a wonderful collection of scale farm vehicles, equipment and machinery? There is so much fun to be had in re-enacting the activities of farming. You might even consider making them a farm play-board by taking a large sheet of plywood or MDF, coating it PVA glue and sprinkling different coloured sand or sticking down coloured felt to replicate the patchwork of fields and farmyards seen in the countryside.
We have a wide range of SIKU farm toys, however, if your child is less interested in the wonderful world of farming, then why not take look at our outdoor toys and play equipment? We have an exciting variety of toys to expand your little ones' minds and keep them away from those dreaded video games.
