Stuffed animals are a staple for every kid, but there are benefits to giving this gift for the holidays. First, kids turn to stuffed animals when they’re sad, upset, or angry. A stuffed animal is like having an imaginary friend. Whether for security or fun, your kid can benefit from learning with their favorite stuffed pet by their side.
Second, these are excellent tools to spur imagination! Your child can imagine entire worlds in which their stuffed animals are the main characters. Get your kids unique animals they may not see otherwise. This can open up a whole new realm of play and imagination for your little ones.
Encourage language development, literature, grammar, and reading skills by getting your kids’ books this holiday season. Fun books are not only excellent for expanding the imagination and offering learning tools, but they’re great ways to get your kid’s brains working more.
You can help your kid further their creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, language, grammar, and reading skills while giving them a fun outlet to dream worlds of their own. Make sure to give them age-appropriate books they’ll be able to read without too much difficulty.
For instance, if your kids are younger, Dr. Suess or other picture books may be best. For older kids, consider small chapter books with pictures in them, like Magic Treehouse books. For kids even older than this, you can consider chapter books that are longer and don’t have pictures. You can give your child a series of books to read, like Harry Potter. Free kids books online are another great option!
At-Home Science Projects
What kid doesn’t love a messy, at-home science project? The truth is that kids love to play, but when their play turns into learning, this is even better! At-home science projects are an excellent way to give your child fun, creativity, and learning all in one.
There are tons of ways you can give this gift. Consider signing your children up for a kid-friendly science project subscription. This could be a mail service or online subscription. Then, help them or oversee as they perform the science project themselves. From watching how colors mix to simple reactions with safe ingredients like baking soda, there’s so much to try.
You can also try making things like slime or a snow globe as a science project craft in one! To deliver this gift, get your children their own lab coats, goggles, and gloves. Wrap these up so your little ones can open them on Christmas day and look forward to playing, getting messy, and learning!
Another excellent gift idea for the holiday season is musical instruments. Kids love to get creative. Whether your children are ten, five, or fifteen years old, getting them a gift, they can play, learn, interact with, and make something of their own is excellent.
Studies show that starting to play music from a young age furthers cognitive activity, academic performance, and development. Plus, musical skills are excellent building blocks for a range of other talents.
Consider musical instruments like a keyboard, a drum set, a xylophone, a guitar, or even something as simple as a triangle. Who knows? A fun gift might spark a passion for music they didn’t even know was there.
