Celebrating your kid’s birthday is no doubt a fun occasion and a bit challenging, at the same time, in terms of selecting the right gift so your child feels happy and truly special. Well as parents it’s a lot to do! With so many options available on the market in terms of card and board games, puzzles, electronic toys, dolls, soft toys, activity and educational games, fancy stationary items, it often becomes a daunting task to pick up just the right stuff for your child.
Here are some interesting gift ideas to help you in this process:
Well, here the plus point is that you won’t have to differentiate between a girl or a boy. The best gifts for this age group are the toys that move and make sounds and are visually appealing as these will keep your child engaged for longer duration and are also good for their cognitive and motor skills. Soft toys are also a good option to encourage the child’s prosocial behavior.
These little minds are really fast at grasping things, hence keeping them involved into learning is great and both activity and educational games score 1010 on this.
You can easily choose from sorting toys, blocks, ring stacker, modeling clay, soft balls, puzzles, musical toys; and if you want to go for books you can opt from picture books, coloring books and puzzle books.
These gifts are not only educational but also add fun to the whole learning process - and children grasp things faster when it’s fun to learn. Playhouses and play vehicles are other interesting options.
At this age, they can be introduced to basic board games like color sorting and easy puzzles etc. Modeling clay, puppets and dolls for girls are also good options. You can gift your cute little monster a plastic shovel set (after this be ready for digs everywhere in your lawn and backyard and in your plant pots) chuckles!! You can also get them a tricycle with a helmet but make sure they ride it under your supervision. Your little princess will surely love things like, a pink tricycle, threading sets, dolls house or a kitchen sets.
