I’m so excited to be joining 75+ other bloggers to bring you the best gift guides for kids this Holiday Season! My gift list focuses on toys that encourage learning. Be sure to head over to “What Do We Do All Day” for all the other amazing Gift Guides.
Each year when Christmas comes around I plan on being smart when choosing gifts for my kids. Usually though, I end up buying things on a whim because they are cute and trendy! This year I plan on being a little smarter and try to buy toys that will make my kids be smarter too! And what would be better than learning tools disguised as toys?
I have divided these toys up by age to make it easier on you. Hopefully there are some ideas here you can use when Christmas Shopping.
