2017 Holiday Gift Guide: Cool Gifts for Kids & Teens for encouraging creativity and play. A little something for everyone!
Need some help finding that perfect gift for kids that is super fun, yet still enriching?
The following gifts are pre-approved by my kids as “cool”, and by parents because they aren’t made of junky plastic, involve excess screen time, or require a gazillion batteries. Win win!
This list is divided into two, one for younger kids and one for older kids and teens. Drop a comment if you have any other favorite, non-techy gift ideas!

So my daughter has the Koi watercolors and LOVES them! Its actually mess free. You fill the brush up with water then squeeze on the paint. SO convenient. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Love the Illustory! So cool you can get your own hardcover book!
This is a OUTSTANDING list! Perfect for my standards. I think a marble track would fit in with this list as well. I love watching my kids build, create, race, imagine, design, with it. I know Santa will be bringing some Magna tiles 🙂 so fun!
