How’s the holiday shopping going? If you still have some children to shop for you are in luck because I’m sharing a bunch of fun gift ideas for kids today!

My Fairy Garden Magical Cottage Playset

Have a child who loves fairies? This fairy garden playset would make the perfect gift! Your child can grow their own magical garden and play with their own fairy, Freya. This set has charming details including moving doors and trickling water.

From Han Solo to Boba Fett, kids can create these ten adorable Star Wars figures from a galaxy far, far away! The 48-page instruction book has step-by-step directions and color photos to help kids advance from padawan crafter to Jedi felt master.

Stompeez! Slippers

Kids love these slippers! They can walk, stomp or jump and the slippers pop to life! They are warm and comfy which makes them the perfect gift for all the cold days ahead.

Buy the T-Rex slippers on Amazon here. (There are a variety of other styles as well. Just type “Stompeez” in the search bar.)

Magnutto Junior Make a Mood – Educational Magnetic Activity

Looking for a gift to give a child on the Autism Spectrum? This “make a mood” activity board would be great for them because many children on the Spectrum have a hard time recognizing emotions. The Magnutto™ Make a Mood is designed to help children identify, express, understand and respond to feeling and emotions. Children use thick, foam, low-strength, safe magnets to create facial expressions and represent a variety of emotions and feelings. I love that the box also includes samples questions for role play that will engage children in conversations about emotions.

Marvel: The Amazing 1000 Dot-to-Dot Book 

I guarantee your child has never done a dot-to-dot book like this! Their  favorite Marvel superheroes are presented in 20 dot-to-dot puzzles and a 19” x 14” wall poster that are amazing enough to display! More sophisticated than the one-dimensional dot-to-dots you knew as a child, these puzzles take about 30 minutes to complete.

We love the original Stomp Rocket but their new version is even more awesome because it lights up! This 100% kid-powered activity will keep kids busy for hours as they try to launch the rockets as high into the sky as they can. They’ll love trying these at night so they can watch them light up.
