Gift Guide for Preschoolers (and Early Grade School)

Looking for a little holiday gift inspiration?  Check out my Gift Guide for Preschoolers.

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is planning the gifts that I’m getting everyone.

And there is no one I enjoy giving to more than my kids!

Skye is at such a cute age (4 1/2), and I had so much fun planning her gifts this year.

If you have got a little one in the three to five age set, here are my top picks for preschoolers!

Lego Junior

Boys and girls alike love building with Legos! The Lego Junior sets are just perfect for this age set. My boys both loved legos from a young age and wanted to move on from Duplos before their building skill was ready. I remember many a Christmas spending hours building for them. Lego Junior bridges the gap with sets that they can enjoy building themselves.

Stained Glass Activity Set

Let your little one create luminous art with these peel and press stickers!  Feel the grooved frame with stickers and then hang it in a sunny window.  Recommended for 5+.  Skye is almost 5, but I imagine I will have to help her with this.  It will be great to help develop her fine motor skills.
