The two youngest of my five children had so much fun giving their advice for my Holiday Gift Guide for Kids. These have been some of the favorite gifts they have received (many from their Nana.)
My favorite toys for my kids are the ones that encourage their creativity and hands on activity. Toys that enhance their love of fitness and the outdoors are high on my list as well.

I hope you find some new ideas to help your Holiday shopping go smoothly and easily!
This mini donut maker takes the Easy Bake Oven to the next level. I have to admit I have a weakness for homemade donuts. And I don’t think the calories count if they are ones made by your kids! That makes this a gift for your little ones and you!
Spooner boards let kids do “cool tricks that involve twisting and movement,” according to my 9 year old son. What a fun way to stay active! And as a mom of multiple kids, I love when I can buy the same gift for each of them just in a different color (these come in a variety.)
Stick-lets are a really fun way to let kids be creative and build forts. They can collect branches and stick them through the holes to connect the backyard fort of their dreams.
Classic Lincoln Logs are still one of my kids favorite toys and I don’t think it’s just because they live in a real life Lincoln Log cabin (see our cabin here.) They love being creative and building things in a different way every time they play.
Mad Matter is something we have even made special trips to our local toy store, Imaginuity, to pick up. They love to squeeze it, mold it and create with it. “It’s like super cool putty,” says my 11 year old.
My kids first learned about StikBots in their Art Classroom at school. It’s a free App where they can make live movies with any of their toys or these StickBot figures. They have had more fun and spent hours creating action movies with these guys!
Sports guys and girls are a legendary toy in our home. My kids play baseball, football, soccer and hockey and there is a box for each sport. Soccer has boys and girls figures. My kids love setting up games on the cloth field or plastic rink.
Lil’ Woodzeez may be the cutest toy on the planet. The little forest or farm animal families come with a story book and cute clothes. There are precious buildings and accessories for kids to build their own woodland town complete with tree house, bakeries and flower shops. The best part are their price! They are very affordable and made so well.
The Ninja Slacker Line was actually a birthday gift for my nine year old that the whole family has enjoyed. If you follow me on Instagram you may remember seeing the kids doing the fun tree top obstacle course.
A few years ago one of my kids and his cousin got these bumper balls for Christmas and they are still talking about how much fun they are. Get ready for the giggles! They even love using them as little places to curl up and “hide”.
I hope you have found a few ideas for your kids in our list of favorites. Happy Holidays!
