Now that the turkey has all been eaten, I’m in full holiday mode! I’m on a mission to get my gift shopping done early so I can enjoy all of the other fun things about this time of year! With these fun holiday gift ideas for kids I’m off to a great start!
We’re excited to share these great gifts in partnership with Babbleboxx.
FUN HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR KIDS
Whether your kids are into STEM activities, reading every book they can get their hands on, or getting crafty, there are some great gifts ideas for kids out there this year!
We had the chance to check out some amazing products courtesy of Babbleboxx and I’m excited because they work well for my kids and for my niece and nephew!
Getting that Christmas shopping done is easy this year!
STEM GIFT IDEA: CIRCUIT SCRIBE DRONE BUILDER KIT
If you have an older child who loves to take things apart or build things, the Circuit Scribe Drone Builder kit is an amazing gift idea this year! They can create their own drone and then fly it!
The kit comes with the Circuit Scribe pen that is filled with conductive silver (don’t worry, it’s not toxic!) that kids can use to draw the wires to the motors. The kit also comes with cardboard arms that allow kids, and even adults, to really create their own amazing drone from parts.
It’s so easy to do too!
First, you assemble the drone hub and the pre-made arms that come in the kit. Match the symbols on the motors and arms to connect them. Then turn on the hub. Once you connect your device to the CSDrone Network, you can use the CSPilot App to control your drone!
Learn even more about the drone builder kit and get your own at CircuitScribe.com!
FOR YOUNG READERS: INTERRUPTING CHICKEN AND THE ELEPHANT OF SURPRISE
I’m a huge fan of giving books as gifts. After spending many years teaching kids to read, I love a good children’s book! This year there’s a great new read-aloud book from David Ezra Stein!
David Ezra Stein is the award-winning author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling book, Interrupting Chicken!
If you don’t own Interrupting Chicken, you need to take care of that! It will have the whole family entertained when you read together!
This year, we can get Interrupting Chicken and the Elephant of Surprise! It’s the follow-up book to one of our favorite picture books! It’s a must-have this holiday season if you have young readers!
We loved reading about what happens when the little red chicken sits down to do homework only to find out that every good story needs an elephant of surprise. Yes, you read that right. Elephant or element? Does it really matter? You’ve got to read Interrupting Chicken and the Elephant of Surprise together to find out!
Right now you can visit Candlewick.com and use the promotional code CANDLEWICK at checkout to get 25% off all books! Hurry and stock up! (Valid only on US purchases.)
CLASSIC GIFT IDEAS FOR KIDS (AND ADULTS): PEZ THE GRINCH PEZ GIFT TIN
Let’s be honest, some things are just classic at Christmas. PEZ is one of those brands I can remember finding in my stocking for as long as I can remember! And The Grinch — well that’s an obvious holiday classic.
So pair the two together and you’ve got a gift idea that’s great for really anyone, no matter how young or old!
How cute is The Grinch PEZ gift tin? It’s a fun way to bring The Grinch home, especially if your family saw Illumination’s Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch in theaters recently and LOVED it like our family did!
You get four new PEX dispensers in each tin, including:
- The Grinch
- Cindy Lou
Plus it comes with sour Green Apple PEZ candy! How perfectly Grinch-like is that? It’s a holiday gift idea for kids that would be great for the adults too!
CRAFTY GIFTS FOR KIDS: KLUTZ CRAFT KITS
Carrigan has recently become quite the little artist. She loves to paint, cut, and glue anything she can get her hands on! So I’m always on the hunt for great craft kits that even the younger kids can do!
Klutz My Clothespin Zoo and My Simple Sewing are great crafts for the preschool crowd! I’m thrilled to have them in our house to offer her some structured crafting time. The kits have also helped her learn some new skills too! When learning and fun cross paths, it’s always a good gift idea!
We’re huge fans of clothespin crafts so the My Clothespin Zoo kit is perfect for us! You can create up to 10 different clothespin animals! Plus kids can learn fun facts about each animal they create. This is a great kit for building fine motor skills and getting that practice that will help them be successful in Kindergarten!
The Klutz My Simple Sewing kit introduced Carrigan to a world that Grambo knows and loves. Grambo spent many years as a seamstress and costume designer. So My Simple Sewing is a great way for the generations to share interests.
I love that the kit starts with lacing projects to help the kids learn the basics of sewing. It’s also another great way to practice those fine motor skills! Then the kids can move on and use the plastic needle and “Yarn Stoppers” to really start sewing on their own!
These are such great gift ideas, but I also love them for keeping kids busy during winter break from school!
FANDOM GIFTS FOR KIDS: FUNKO 5 STAR ALBUS DUMBLEDORE
I don’t care how young or old you are, if you’re a fan of anything and there’s a Funko POP figure for it, it’s a great gift idea for you! It’s so true! My kids will vouch for me and tell you all about my Funko POP collection.
Justin is a huge Harry Potter fan and he’s passing his love down to our kids. Weston is also a huge fan of collectibles so the Funko 5 Star Albus Dumbledore is going under the tree for him this year! I LOVE that Dumbledore comes with Fawkes the Phoenix! What a cool detail!
You can recreate your favorite moments from the Harry Potter books or create your own tales. Each character comes with character-specific accessories and a window display box packaging that gives the feeling of the world of Harry Potter.
And if you’re looking for a great gift to go along with the Funko 5 Star Albus Dumbledore Pop Figurine, there’s plenty of Harry Potter Merchandise to choose from but our family will always recommend the Illustrated Editions of the books.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Version is absolutely amazing. It makes a perfect gift. The gorgeous illustrations by artist Jim Kay bring the story to life in a new way.
If you’re looking for a great price on the book, deals on Funko Collectibles, and tons of DVDs and Blu-ray to choose from, DeepDiscount.com has amazing prices on everything!
