I do want to say that even though I am sharing these wonderful gift ideas, I am by no means saying children need all of these. We inspire to be semi- minimalists in our home and picking things for our kids is important to us. We like toys that have multiple purposes and last for several years. Today I am sharing some of those favorites with you.
Children love to make music, especially with this wonderful rhythm instrument set.
Grab your kid’s binoculars and get outdoors for some fun. These are perfect for nature walks, bird watching, stargazing and more.
This Learning Resources Super Sorting Pie is a hit with all kids. The tongs and fruit pieces are the perfect size for little hands. Plus, this pie has so many cool uses like counting, working on patterns, colors, imaginary play and more.
The sandpaper letters help children trace the letter shapes. It includes both lowercase and capital letters.
