Last Minute Educational Gifts for Ages 5-12

  1. education- gift-giving-for-kidsThe Fuze Bike FX Wheel Writer attaches to any bike wheel and comes with a dozen pre-loaded LED patterns that light up the street when the wheels start to turn. You can also program your own picture or text messages using any Apple device. For less than $20, the waterproof battery operated lights can be mounted to almost any standard sized bike wheel. Encourage outdoor exercise, while keeping them safe.
  2. LEGO! Well, Lego anything really. With the recent successes of The Lego Movie (available on DVD or Blu-Ray) these timeless toys are always a safe bet. From a full blown Millennium Flacon or Elsa’s castle (for the ambitious builders) to starter packs with simple cars and buildings, these toys are great for kids of any age – and adults too!
  3. Sometimes it can be extra difficult to purchase gifts for special needs students – Tangle Creations has introduced a line called Tangle Therapy full of toys that provide idle hands with twisting and soothing sensory engagement, stress relief and can even increase focus. National Autism Resources even named this toy to its recent list of “10 Sensory Toys Kids & Teens with Autism Will Love.”
  4. Goldieblox strikes again this holiday season with the company’s recent Hero campaign, which features Goldie and her BFF Ruby Rails as some of the most well-known crime fighting super heroes of the silver screen. The STEM-based girl power toys will teach little ones to save the day by building the Goldie and Ruby a sky diving parachute or zip line escape route for about $25 each!
  5. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, The Polar Express seems to many of us like a “new” holiday book. The movie version (released in 2004) only increased the popularity of what is sure to become a classic story which has sold millions of copies and has been translated into over a dozen other languages.

It is the season of giving, so the nice gift of all is to teach your children the importance of giving to those less fortunate.

Feel free to share your kid’s wishlist ideas and stories with us!
