Today is the birthday of one of my children’s great-grandmas. (They have three, which is pretty neat). Great-grandma Gert is 89 today and she is ringing in her birthday with her NEW iPad from her son (my father-in-law) and her first introduction to the internet. How cool is that? Awesome gift.
My kids have accumulated a lot of gifts over the years and these are some great ideas, in my opinion. A great gift for a boy is a tractor WITH a loader. In this photo below, Vince is playing with a skidloader. Having the option to scoop and dump makes the toy so much more interesting. I know that my boy is really into farming more than most, but just about any boy loves a loader tractor.
A great gift ideas for girls is Color Wonder markers by Crayola. If the marker touches anything other than the specific Crayola paper, it doesn’t leave a mark. Not even on walls! I really like to pull out our Color Wonders for in the car on a long trip. Even Vince, who dislikes coloring, will play with them for a little while.
Another great idea for a boy or a girl, is something my sister, who works for the Post Office, recently mailed to us. A BEACH BALL!
She wrote our address on it, and did a few drawings on some of the stars. We left the stamp on it…for now anyway. I’m pretty sure you could do the same thing with a pool noodle. Great gift idea, especially if the child isn’t expecting it. Shout out to my sister!
Thanks for reading!
