If you’re looking for an unusual gift for a 2 year old, why not buy a poster of something they love?
2 year old children have such strong likes and dislikes – for example, their favourite TV program. A poster of something they’re passionate about is guaranteed to bring a smile on their birthday – and whenever they see it on the wall.
Unlike with many toys for 2 year olds, you can be pretty confident that no one else at the birthday party will have bought the same thing.
Here’s a selection of posters that I think make great gifts for 2 year olds.
Giant wall murals for 2 year olds
A wall mural will inject instant character into a 2 year old’s bedroom. They’ll love waking up in the morning to see characters or animals they love – it’s as if their best friends are with them all the time!
Educational posters to help 2 year olds learn
I believe that 2 year olds really benefit from having brightly coloured educational posters in the home. The best educational posters for 2 year olds focus on the things they’re learning at the moment such as colours, words and the alphabet (very basic at this age). The following posters are designed to help 2 year olds with these – displaying these posters in the home will encourage you to discuss them with your 2 year old on a daily basis:
- Learn the Alphabet poster – a blue poster with fun pictures of things starting with each letter, designed to engage 2 year olds.
- Fun with the Alphabet poster – another lovely poster to help 2 year olds start to learn the alphabet in a fun way.
- Know your Phonic Sounds poster – education experts recommend phonic sounds to help 2 year olds learn to say different sounds. This poster lists all the sounds and helps you learn how to say them in a way your 2 year old will remember. It gives examples of different things that use each sound and has lovely pictures to illustrate each one.
- Know your Colours poster – a lovely colourful poster showing all the colours, with fun examples of things that are each colour.
