Gift Guide: Toddler Boys
Hi y'all! I hope you enjoyed my first gift guide that I posted on Friday. Giving and receiving gifts is one of my top love languages so it is my joy to help others find special gifts for their loved ones.
Next up is one of my favorites, toddler boys! My son, Harrison, is 3 years old and is about as busy as they come. It has been so fun seeing some of the things he's interested in. I included a few sensory and STEM activities in here as well as just some fun toys that Harrison has been loving lately. We either purchased or were gifted, by loved ones, each of these items so I know for a fact that my 3 year old loves them. Also, everything on this list is under $50 so that is pretty awesome.
1. Toy Sink With Flowing Water
If your toddler is obsessed with water then they will love this sink. All you do is fill the based up with water and the water will steam out of the faucet. Just this morning, Harrison "washed dishes" for about 45 minutes.
2. Bears in Pairs Game
Bears in Pairs is is a great game for toddlers. Together we practice colors, counting, matching, and fine motor skills by opening the doors and hiding the bears.There are several levels so this game can grow with them.
4. Light Up Rain Boots
Harrison calls his rain boots "work boots". These boots are very easy for him to put on and take off and they are easy to clean. Plus, they light up which is so fun to him. We have them in navy!
5. Writing Tablet
This little writing tablet would be a great stocking stuffer coming in right under $10. Harrison plays with this a lot while we are driving. It comes with a protective sleeve, perfect to throw into my purse for when we are out and about.
6. Dyson Vacuum
We love this cute little vacuum. It actually has a sucker on it and sucks up dust and dirt which is really neat. We have had ours for a couple of years and it has taken a beating but is still running great.
7. Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons by Amy Rosenthal
I discovered this book while I was at market selling Taylor Elliott Designs. It was the first book I purchased when we found out we were expecting our first baby, Harrison! It's the sweetest book. It teaches important life lessons like patience, sharing, and compassion with a topic that toddlers can understand...cookies!
PS: they also make a Christmas version of this book, too!
8. Kinetic Sand Kit
Harrison loves kinetic sand and mama loves this kit because it's like a mini sandbox. If you haven't heard of kinetic sand, it's a lot less messy than regular sand! This is a great gift item for the holidays and for birthdays, if you have several kiddos to shop for. It's under $9!
We love magna-tiles! It has been really fun watching Harrison's imagination when we play with magna-tiles. As of lately, he builds garages for his cars. He will be receiving another set for Christmas so we can build even more things!
10. John Deere Gator
This is a small gator, not much larger than a hot wheels car. But, Harrison loves it and it's under $10 and would make a great stocking stuffer. Harrison often tows his gator on is "tow truck", mentioned below.
11. Wooden Truck and Trailer
This quite possibly might be Harrison's favorite toy right now. He is very into trailers and towing things. He loads and unloads this truck and trailer daily.
