My Dad has been asking what the kids want for Christmas for a couple of weeks already. So, I'm researching what the kids might like that falls under more of an educational status rather than just regular toys. I have updated our book list on our blog and plan on adding a spot near the bottom to show some toys and games of interest. I don't know about your kids but with our kids they each have their own personal interests and skills. Austyn is a building and Science. Zoe is anything creative and games! So in each instant they have definite educational interests that we can encourage through some educational toys that I know they will be very excited about having.
Here are some ideas I came up with that I think our kids would love.
For Austyn: Meccano RC Race Car, Architecto, RushHour, ZomeTool, Science Magic, Straws Connectors, Crazy Forts, Snaptricity... legos and megnetics are also always welcome in this home!
There you have it! Some educational toys that my kids would love. Hopefully this helps out the grandparents. What would your kids love for Christmas?
