Toys now available for kids are NOTHING like my day. Exploring the toy aisle at Target always gets my mind blown. Then of course my next thought is always, “why didn’t I think of that?’. My daughter is lucky enough to have an entire playroom with items to keep her entertained. I love finding unique, fun and creative toys that she can get her mind going. Check out my list below for some fun ideas.
Oonies by Moose Toys: Oonies are the coolest way to create! Oonies stick to each other so kids can make amazing creatures and designs – with no mess! Kids can take an Oonies pellet, place it in the inflator and watch it magically grow in to an Oonie! No mess, makes for a happy Mama!
My little one loved making Oonies and adding them to the tree as Ooniments. She made blue and purple ones to mimic her love of Frozen. They were so easy for her to create. I loved there was no mess to clean afterwards!
Color Coordinated Boxes: Creating a fun box of rainbow colored items or same color items. For my creative little kitchen helper a fun set of cupcake liners and sprinkles all in colors of the rainbow would be so fun.
Learning Placemats: I was lucky enough to get a laminator from my MIL one year. I love it, I get to create all type of fun projects. Using the laminator I am able to then preserve the items created. My tiny tot is currently learning colors, shapes and letters. She can create her own placemat and continue to use with foods and markers for tracing.
Personalized Book: There are tons of different sites and services now that offer this. Allowing parents, grandparents and loved ones to create fun bedtime stories with their child’s name used within the title and story.
Photo Magnets: I have made these many times for friends and family with photos of my kids. Now that my daughter is old enough to use glue and markers, it is a fun activity to create together. There are so many fun washi tape designs that can be used as well to cover the sticks for decoration. We can use them to then hang future works of art as well.
