The first of many Holiday Gift Guides. I’ve basically pulled together items that we use in our home or that I would give as gifts. Hope you enjoy and more to come!
Educational Gift Guide
- LeapFrog LeapReader System Learn-to-Read 10 Book Mega Pack: The LeapReader system helps your child learn to read by sounding out letters and words in interactive stories and activities.
- Bob Books: Great series of books, because the clean layout, short words, and simple phonics make learning to read a fun and natural step for their children. It’s a collection of books made for “pre-reading” to help prepare the child all the way up to advance reading books.
- Montessori ABC Learning Toys for Toddlers & Kids (ages 1-6): Smart Alphabet Blocks for Interactive Educational iPad Games for Preschool & Kindergarten. Works with your iPad and their educational apps turning your iPad into an endless learning tool.
- Double Sided Chalk Board + White Board Easel: This is the exact art easel that we own. Love that it has a white board, roll down paper, chalk board and painting cups. It’s been great and not an eyesore.
- Mess Free Doodle Mat (for all ages): Love this doodle mat and something that young kids of all ages can play with together. No ink or paint and is safe for children. Never make a mess and keep your kids clean! This drawing mat helps to find a creative way to develop writing and painting skills. Help to improve kids’ creativity and imagination as well, exercise hand-eye coordination & the color perception ability.
- Lite-Brite Magic Screen Toy: Easy and fun for anyone of all ages! Who doesn’t remember lite-brite as a kid!?
- Ravensburger Disney Puzzel: This brand of puzzles has become our household favorite. The pieces stay together and the edges don’t fray.
- Pretend Play Calculator and Register Set: Learn basic math and calculator skills while running a pretend store. This calculator cash register features oversized buttons and a big number display, making it appropriate for all ability levels. 73 pieces include actual-size pretend money, pretend credit card, and suggested activities. Great for imaginitive role play.
- ThinkFun Zingo Bingo Award Winning Game for Pre-Readers and Early Readers (age 4 and up): Zingo is a fun pre-reading game for ages 4 and up, and is one of the best gifts you can buy for kids. Zingo is built to develop critical thinking skills. Playing will improve language skills through fun and fast placed play. I love that it helps with sight word identification.
- Color ON! Ten Feet of Coloring Space: I’ve posted about this before, but Henry loves this coloring paper. It’s just different that a coloring book and gives them a huge sense of accomplishment once they’ve colored all ten feet!
- Scrabble Junior: Kid-sized words and colorful pictures make it fun to match letter tiles to words on the grid. Players move their funny tokens up the score track as they score points. When all of the tiles have been placed on the board, the player with the most points wins!
