Hey Friends!

Throughout the years my children have accumulated so many toys! They have a playroom filled with toys that haven't been played with, in what seems like ages, in favor of more simple things that they enjoy playing with like LEGO bricks, electronic gaming systems, arts and crafts, science kits, and outdoor activities like basketball and bike riding.

I decided that I am not buying my kids any toys this Christmas. I'll leave that up to my family members who ignore my pleas to not buy them any toys. My husband and I sat down and came up with other options. For us, it's not about the number of things they receive, the quality is much more important.

I'm sharing some ideas that my husband and I have come up with for our children for those of you who could use some help, in hopes that this list can give you a good start and lead to more gift ideas that aren't just toys.

Here we go!

-Gift Cards to their favorite play places or someplace new like a trampoline park, indoor skydiving, LEGOLAND Discovery Center, Chuck E. Cheese's... There are so many different options!

-A SmartWatch. Last year for Christmas we bought our two eldest kids Kurio Watches and our youngest a VTech Kidizoom watch. A year later, they still use them regularly! There are multiple color and style options for ages 4 and up!




-An outdoor playset like a trampoline, basketball goal, a sled and snow gear, or even a swing and slide playground set. These are fun gifts that help kids stay active.

-DIY science kits which are fun and educational and you can find kits with a variety of themes such as DIY volcanoes, geode cutting sets, and even a bubble gum making kits!






-An electronic personal bank that counts money earned (e.g. from allowance) as it's placed in the bank.




-A monthly subscription box like Bitsbox Coding For Kids.

-Arts and crafts supplies for little crafters like a scrapbook, an art easel with a paper roll, or an accessory making kit.


-An instant film camera and film to go along with the scrapbook :-).
