Tuesday Morning Tidy: Valentine Gift Guide for Kids
Typically, Valentine's Day means a quick run to Walgreens for cute boxes of our kids' favorite candy. However...we're still. dealing. with. COVID. Therefore, every holiday seems like an opportunity for some fun and distraction from the everyday! Today, I'm sharing a few suggestions for some easy, small gift ideas that also give kids something to do.
Mad Libs - This post was actually triggered by the fact that I just finished a series of Mad Libs with the kids. They are always fun, and a great way to secretly practice parts of speech!
Legos - These BrickHeadz are especially adorable, and there is always a holiday-themed kit!
Art Supplies - I don't know about you, but we go through Crayola products like they're water! A package of colored pencils, washable markers and some YouTube drawing videos are an hour of fun in our house! One of my kids is getting really into art, so these watercolor pens might be a good gift.
Cookie Baking - Valentine's Day is on a weekend this year, which means the perfect opportunity to whip up some cookies and spend an afternoon decorating. There is no better gift you can give your kids than spending this quality time with them. And your spouse will no doubt appreciate the gift of delicious cookies! Check out our highly recommended recipe for iced sugar cookies.
Valentine Bag/Box Kit - These are always fun for storing valentines from class exchanges. You can go old-school with stickers, construction paper and a tissue box or head to Target for a pre-assembled kit.
Cookbook - We love The Complete Baking Book for Young Chefs. We recently made the cupcakes with strawberry frosting, and they were delicious!
Plus Plus Blocks - There are all sorts of small kits of these building blocks. Robots or pets would be fun, or just a tube of multicolored blocks.
Let us know what you're gifting your children this Valentine's Day!
