I'm not sure what you consider "educational".  At those ages, I figure any non-screen play is educational.

 

My almost 2 and 4 year olds love to play together with:

- Imaginext

- Knex Junior

- Play doh

- Zoo/Farm and Plastic Animals

- Hot wheel cars

- Bristle Blocks

- Water table (on the back deck or on a water proof tablecloth and a bunch of towels)

- Bean bags and targets/containers to throw them at or into

- Tearing open and drawing on junk mail

- the Wooden Train set

- Stickers, stickers and more stickers (I peel off the extra paper around the stickers to make them easier for the kids)

- Duplos

Yes, just non screen. Thanks for the ideas.

Sand trays

Bean/rice bins

Dry erase pages (make a binder and print off pages and put in a protector sheet). I used mazes, trace pages, dot to dot....etc

Books on tape!!! (My lifesaver! )

Magformers

Puzzles

Adding to the suggestions above:

 

Hardwood unit blocks

Hand puppets

Wood toys, like the Melissa and Doug ones where you put pegs into things

Wood xylophone

Anything that is not actually meant for toddlers, but is not either a.) a choking hazard (I use this term loosely) and/or b.) something with which they can destroy the house.
