You're looking for ideas for kids soccer toys that aren't the typical things that kids need to play soccer, like goals, balls, shin guards and cleat. This post will give you a list of toys for kids who play soccer that are educational, entertaining, and will tap into your kids natural imagination.
Soccer toys for kids that don't involve playing actual soccer can be beneficial in many ways. Kids can learn the game of soccer while having fun playing games and participating in worthwhile physical and mental activities. Best of all, most of them are surprisingly affordable.
The first category of kids soccer toys is my favorite, the educational toys.
The right choice of toys can spark kids imagination and improve learning.
Toys like this, where there are no defined expectations or rules to follow, allow for open-ended play.
According to MyBrainBlox open-ended play helps children develop social and emotional intelligence.
Research shows that this kind of educational toy is beneficial to kid's cognitive development. GOOD NEWS: These are available for boys too!
A soccer themed wrist watch is a great tool for teaching your kid how to tell time. It's a lost skill in today's digital world, but children need to know how to tell time with analogue watches too.
They'll get a better understanding of how hours and minutes are related. These watches come in variety of sports, but of course, I'm partial to the soccer watch.
This early childhood toy is intended for the youngest, future soccer players. It teaches colors, counting numbers, music, and yes, even sportsmanship.
The multi-color, Laugh & Learn Singing Soccer Ball teaches through sound, touch, and movement, using three different modes.
It's machine washable (after you remove the electronics).
This idea for a soccer themed game has hundreds of variations. That's right. Just use this soccer deck of cards to play any card game you wish.
Whether your child plays solitaire, rummy, go fish or any other a deck of cards goes a long way.
