I have four grandchildren with ages from 2-7. I want them to develop their creativity and natural gifts. What sort of toys can I give them? I have given them lego building blocks. Do you have some suggestions that will be good for them?

Yeah, board games, jigsaw puzzles with things like map of the world on them, toy key board perhaps if they're interested in music, oh and books! Aparently a mother once asked Einstein what she should read her son (persumamly to become as clever as him) and he replied that she should read him fairy tales, she asked what after that then he replied, more fairy tales.

good idea, actually my 1 grandson received a book with 5 pages made of thick carton, very colorful and there was nothing in it but pictures of animals and he seemed to enjoy it very much but soon lost interest. So I guess, more books!
