Early Readers!
Create balance for your children with physical activities, critical thinking, exposure to new places and ideas, and lots of conversations to build confidence and vocabulary.

By third grade, your child is reading to learn (as opposed to learning to read) so the whole world is now open to them! This is a great age to expose kids to everything you can think of. With their new-found lease on the world, social media and online games will begin to impact their time, their social circle, and their social esteem.

Children this age are able to play competitively with younger and older people when it comes to board games, puzzles, and cards. Look for games that keep score and let them be your scorekeeper - this will build math skills and confidence!

From journals to science experiments and logic games, Beyond the Blackboard has the best toys and gifts for 7 and 8 year olds.

The best toys for 7 and 8 year olds encourage them to get lost in play and engage in reading.

At this age, kids are growing physically and socially. You may even find that your child declares they have a singular interest such as art or engineering. Seven and eight year-old boys and girls also want more freedom and independence, and have quickly developing problem-solving skills. Their imaginations now allow them to keep fantasy play going over entire days!

Some 7 and 8 year-olds may be ready for middle-grade chapter books, graphic novels for kids, and more advanced picture books. As their art and writing skills improve, notebooks and drawing pads are awesome gifts for 7 and year-old children.
