My nieces and nephews from Israel are on their way visit grandparents. My 2 year old son will probably not have a chance to visit but would like to send something to them while they are here. Any ideas for a gift to help entertain the 2 to 11 year-olds?
Thanks for any suggestions!
It’s awesome that he wants to send his cousins something for them to do while they are visiting. The wide age range means we need to find something safe for the youngest but that will still hold the interest of the older kids. Here are a few suggestions I think are fantastic. –Christina
I like the Kids’ Garden Activity Cards
by Barefoot Books since it gives the kids something to do while at their grandparents, encourages them to play outdoors and can be pretty self-directed, especially with the 11 year old in the lead. Plus, the cards are very sturdy, should the 2 year old decide to uh, “play” with them on his own.
There’s a new line of LEGO board games
that are super fun, and if your group skews to the older end, an imaginative game like Creationary
could keep them busy for a very long time.
For the baby, take a look at Green Toys building blocks
which are environmentally friendly, and should keep the littlest from trying to swipe all the smaller Lego pieces.
If your kids are into stickers as much as my kids, they will love Klutz’s Incredible, Outrageous Sticker Book
which should keep them occupied, especially if they’ll be spending a lot of time driving from relative to relative.
Have a great visit!
