Kid's Gift Ideas
Check safety standards...
Looking for well designed, educational, and safe kids gift ideas? Be sure to buy gifts that pass safety standards and check to see if the companies producing the gifts have received any awards for their products.
Books always make great presents. Most children that are exposed to age appropriate books at an early age learn to read by age six or seven. Not sure what books to buy for young learners? Check out "picture books for children" for ideas.
Suggestions to encourage creativity
A reusable vinyl sticker scene play set is another great kids gift idea. It is great for quiet times or for building vocabulary. Children have an opportunity to express themselves through role-playing, to experiment with new words, to develop their imagination and participate in the retelling of their own or others' stories.
Mudpuppy's sticker sets come in over 20 topics such as world maps, dinosaurs, camping, circuses, ancient Egypt and many more. Some have a variety of backgrounds. They are an excellent kindergarten graduation gift and have a handle for easy carrying when traveling.
A stationery set encourages creativity and gives children a purpose for practicing literacy skills.
Children sound out or copy letters, words and sentences as they try to create their own presents, invitations, note cards, lists or drawings.
Most young children love puzzles and they make a quality kids gift idea. They provide family fun, are entertaining and teach children skills at the same time. Playing with puzzles builds a child's ability to compare and match and increases logical thinking skills. For more information about the educational benefits of puzzles read more....
