4 Gifts for kids that aren’t toys!
Chances are family members have started asking you for ideas of things to get your littles for Christmas. If your kiddos are anything like mine they have a toy box overflowing with toys. Lots and lots of toys, that get forgotten about.
A membership to your local zoo.
My kids were given a membership to our zoo about 4 years ago, each year when it is time for renewal my mom asks if they want her to renew the membership. The answer has always been a resounding YES! Because the cost of admission to the zoo is covered under our membership, it has been totally fine to only go and see the lions, tigers and bears.
A membership to a favorite museum.
Much like the membership to the zoo, a museum pass is nice because there are exhibits that rotate through on a very regular basis. Plus, it is a fantastic way to sneak in some learning without your kids realizing it! Score!
A gift certificate to a pottery place.
My kids have been to the paint your own pottery type place before and they love it. However, my wallet doesn’t love as much! It is a fun way to spend the afternoon, and it comes with a keepsake to remember your day!
This last idea isn’t going to make lasting memories necessarily but, for my family it isn’t something that we do on a regular basis.
A gift certificate to see a movie
Movies these days cost upwards of $50 between the tickets themselves and the candy and popcorn. Sometimes it is just nice to have an outing like this covered!
