I'm going through my daughters toys and realize that she doesn't play with 95% of them so I want to get rid of them. But then I think, what will a play with? What does she play with? She's only 3.5 years old right now but I'm trying to plan for Xmas and her bday. She's into her baby dolls, play kitchen, and tracing letters/numbers. She's also into dress up and singing along with let it go from frozen...over and over and over!!! She's in school all week and I've noticed that she likes to pretend she's the teacher at home and me and DH are her students and then she does all of the stuff they do at school. So I got her a big calendar like the one at school and I also got a big world map because she points to the continents and names them on an imaginary map. I also printed out tracing letter and numbers and put them in a 3-ring binder for her...she loves it!
So I want to get her things similar to what schools have. (When I was a kid I wanted everything my school had too...man she's just like me!!) but what do schools have? What will she be learning at 4 years old?
She's also really into reading and asking how to spell words.
