From name puzzle stools to the coziest blankets to our favorite books, I’ve rounded up 20 great gifts for little kids! I’ll be taking a break from posting here until Monday to spend the holiday with my family. Don’t forget to check my Black Friday post for updates every day this week. Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
All-in-One Easel, $79
This easel has a chalkboard, whiteboard, and a roll of paper for painting as well as a place for paint. We have a similar one and Amalia uses it all the time! It takes up lots of time and gets her creativity flowing.
Wooden Name Stool, $79
Amalia got this stool for her second birthday and we use it every day. She uses it to wash her hands before dinner and to help me cook and bake in the kitchen. She also plays with the puzzle and learne how to spell her name from this stool!
Our Generation Dolls, $24
Target’s version of the classic American Girl Dolls are a tiny fraction of the price and I promise you, kids don’t know the difference… well little ones don’t anyway. Amalia has an AGD but we bought her some clothing and accessories from the Our Generation line. This diner is at the top of her list from Santa!
Balance Bike, $189
This might be the cutest little balance bike I’ve ever seen! If you’re looking for a great, more affordable option, this one is also excellent for $69. Balance bikes are a great way to teach littles how to ride a bike.
Hey Clay Animals, $16
My aunt gave one of these kits to Amalia for her birthday this year and it was SO much fun to do together. It’s made up of this really cool clay and then gives you a code for an app that shows you how to build different animals. Amalia loved helping to build them then we played with the animals for weeks afterwards.
The Questioneers Books, $9
Anel discovered this set of picture books for Amalia and she loves them. Each of the 4 books tells the story of a kid with a passion who perseveres to follow his or her dreams. The pictures are great and the stories are in rhyme which makes them more fun to read, IMO. Sofia Valdez, Future Prez is our current favorite.
