Investing in games

I just read this post on Sew Liberated that talks about games for 3 year olds.  I think these would all be great for Dashiell, but the Busytown one sounds ideal– he LOVES to do the “searches” in his High 5 magazine and the game is a searching game.

He is less interested in the memory game– but he seems to really enjoy the memory games on the iphone…. And he is digging candyland.

Esme has been enjoying fitting things together the last few weeks. I think we should focus on puzzle play with her.  We have a lot of puzzles– most of them are in her toy chest.  Perhaps we can just rotate them or find a better place to keep some downstairs too.  In particular, she has been interested in putting the wooden train track together. She also likes the little plastic pieces with the letters– they are in a ziplock with the other games downstairs.

Is there anything else we want to purchase or invest in for them for the coming months? Sometimes I forget how their preferences change and that they need some new toys now and then.
