So yeah it’s coming up to Christmas and of course, we have to spoil our kids (who doesn’t around the holiday season?) Truthfully, we only need to get one toy as Ethan could care less if he’s playing with a broken block or a stone from the street, and, he has all of Jayden’s old toys. But we want to get Jayden something he’ll not only really enjoy, but also get creative with as he’s a pretty imaginative kid and loves to play on his own which is certainly great for me!
He’s been using his Lego a lot recently. Indeed, every morning before we leave for preschool he needs at least 10 minutes to build “another spaceship.” So that’s great. But then when I was at Kayla’s house I saw these Clic Toys and he was having a blast with them. He was making all sorts of things – hardly playing with her kid (his best friend, Matthew), at all. So I think we’re going to get them – probably the smallest box of 175 pieces, because at his age, that will probably be more than adequate.
There’s also something I saw online: Color Mixing Toys. Since mom and dad want to get the kids something for Christmas too, I may suggest these. They’re just for fun and don’t really require so much imagination but it’s just for a good time and, really, isn’t that what grandma and grandparent presents are meant to be about? According to the promo though, as well as being fun, they are educational. You put them on and see magic! You can switch the lenses pretty easily and see the world like a bug does or how it would like through a kaleidoscope. So I guess that’s educational and it’s definitely something different…certainly wasn’t around in my day Indeed, it gives kids a way of changing the entire world…now, in my life that would be really amazing; just think of all the endless possibilities…hmmm, well, it’s sure something nice to dream about for a not-so-sunny Wednesday!
Have a great day and if you get a few moments to yourself, curl up with a nice hot cup of tea and dream about what you would do if you could change your view of the world into a reality.
