Wooden Tool Kit
All of my Beans loved a wooden tool kit as they were growing up. Children love to copy what they see their parents doing but obviously you can’t give them power tools so a Wooden Tool Kit is the next best thing.
This beautiful Wooden Tool Kit from Jaques of London comes in a sturdy wooden toolbox and contains wooden tools, screws and bolts. Practicing with the tools, screws and bolts is great for refining their motor skills which will help them when they learn to write, use cutlery and when tying shoe laces among other things.
