The best natural toys for kids are the ones that encourage imaginative play. It’s also best if they’re made from natural materials. Here are a few of our favorite natural toys.
I’ve always preferred toys made with natural materials. Not only are they beautiful, but they just feel good to play with.
Waldorf toys are some of our favorites, because they are so beautiful and they fulfill my requirements for natural toys.
Natural toys are like works of art to me, and I love to see them displayed in our home. They’re the toys that will be kept and passed down from one generation to the next.
Best Natural Toys for Kids
When I’m shopping for natural toys, I look for toys made with wood, silk, and wool.
I look for toys that encourage open-ended, imaginative play.
Some of my favorite natural toys for kids include wooden blocks, a wooden dollhouse, dolls, dress-up clothes, and playsilks.
Playsilks are some of the best natural toys for kids, because there are so many different ways to use them.
You can use them to build a fort, make a cape, or wrap up a favorite doll or stuffed animal.
With some imagination, a playsilk can become almost anything!
Sarah’s Silks Play Frame
She also sent us a Fort Kit, which contains a Giant Silk Scape and four Wooden Play Clips.
The Fort Kit is just what you need to turn the Wooden Play Frame into the perfect hideaway for a child.
The Play Frame is a simple wooden frame that you can drape blankets or playsilks over to create a fort or a playhouse, a puppet theater, and more.
There are several different ways you can drape the playsilk over the play frame. If you drape it over the top, it makes a cozy space for playing or reading.
My son has already spent hours in his fort! He especially loves to sit in it with our guinea pig, JoJo. They like to read books and eat snacks in their secret hideaway.
JoJo likes the play fort too! If we drape blankets around all four sides, she likes to walk around and explore.
If you set the Play Frame up differently (draping a playsilk over the front of it), it makes the perfect puppet theater.
The Play Frame is easy to put together and it folds up compactly when you need to store it.
