It’s been a season of meaning, love, and togetherness for us this year, even more so than usual.

We celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah & New Year’s quite in style, coming together with family & friends. It’s one of our favorite ways to spread joy during the festive season. We have been in full holiday mode for a month now, and it’s been a season of kindness, community, discovery and acceptance. It’s been completely wonderful and I think a memorable year for my kids. We’ve been expanding our horizons. I decided it was the year to introduce you all to my holiday gift guide for kids!

Obviously, as you can imagine, we have a lot of fun trying out fun kid gifts for y’all, and you’ll see why each and every gift on my gift guide excites one or both of my kids. And if we’re being honest, I get pretty excited too! Here’s why:

Fun Holiday Gift Guide For Kids From Babbleboxx:

1 – Circuit Scribe Drone Builder Kit. This is SO COOL, especially if you love the idea of creating and flying your own drone. It’s an all-inclusive kit that gives teens the ability to draw the “wires” to the motors with conductive silver ink. And they can use the included cardboard arms to make something out of nothing. The kit comes with a Circuit Scribe Pen – filled with non-toxic conductive silver, and it’s used to draw traces from the motors to the hub, allowing kids the ability to quickly build and fly their OWN drone with a smart phone. (Android & Apple)

Kids can assemble the drone hub and pre-made arms, and then place the motors on the arms by matching the symbols on the motors and hub, and by turning on the button underneath the hub for a red light to flash. You can connect your device’s network to the CSDrone Network, open the CSPilot App on your device, select the “phone tilt control” and then tap the button with one arrow pointing up and one arrow pointing down to take off and land. Making a drone is STEM fun for teens.

And each gift tin includes four new PEZ dispensers: The Grinch, Cindy Lou, Fred, and Max!

4 – Klutz My Clothespin Zoo. This is such a fun crafts kit! You can bring the entire zoo home in one simple activity kit – and your youngest crafters will love creating TEN adorable animals from clothespins. Not only do they make 10 different animals out of colorful clothespins, but they also learn fun facts about each one. This is a wonderful gift for the preschool crowd – with its accessible and familiar materials – and how it builds fine-motor skills.

5 – My Simple Sewing. another fun skill-building kit, and such fun to make your own food friends! Kids can use pre-cut and pre-punched felt and a plastic needle that is safe for little hands. The kit contains three projects: a cookie keychain, a pizza pouch, and a cupcake plushie. It builds fine-motor skills, dexterity, and a practical knowledge of sewing. Kids can start with the card stock lacing projects to understand the motion of stitching, and custom “Yarn Stoppers” and a plastic needle ensure that kids can successfully complete these projects on their own.

Rowling’s Harry Potter series now illustrated in glorious, full color by award-winning artist Jim Kay.

Jurassic World Dinosaur Play For the BEST Holiday Season!

This post is sponsored by Universal Brand Development and all opinions are my own.

Jurassic World toys make the BEST gifts & the best use of time during holiday break. Get them ALL at Walmart #ad #JWUnleashed #BattleDamage #AmericasBestToyShop

As you can imagine, everything for us is dinosaurs right now.

We don’t think the dinosaur obsession is going anywhere, anytime soon. I still have mine! I was telling Des that I remember taking an after school dinosaurs class and I got to take home a big box of dinosaur toys after the class. That was a highlight of my life and his eyes lit up just thinking about it. It’s sort of awesome that it all repeats, and now I have a kid obsessed with all things dinosaur. It reminds me how obsessed I still very much am. Someone give me a giant box of dinosaur toys!

In the meantime, I’ll be buying Jurassic World EXCLUSIVE toys at Walmart right now. That’s right.

Not only will I be buying them, I’ll be playing with them too – if the kids will let me. You see, pretty soon we have a long holiday break from school. And it’s during the cold time of year. Oh what am I even saying? New England school vacations are ALWAYS cold – whether during the holidays, or in February or April. That’s why we plan our vacation time accordingly – with indoors activities. For my kids, overall imaginative play is the game, and Jurassic World Play Dates is the game!

So not only should you have holiday gifting in mind, but think about the time of year it is! You’re about to have between 10-14 (or even more if you’re in college or private school) days off with your kids. Make them count! Get them THE gifts of the holiday season, and know that it will give you HOURS of imagination and creativity during those snow days and vacation days. Your kids will want them all. I know this because my kids do. And Walmart has EXCLUSIVE Jurassic World toys that make PERFECT gifts. They’re awesome for surprises, parties, holiday gifts, and every day imaginative play! For hours!

Here are three of our Jurassic World favorites:

1 – Imaginext Dinosaur Hauler Gift Set. This is such a winner in our house! Des and Scarlet instantly learned how to set up the net to “catch” those dinosaurs! And the hauler comes with and holds a bunch of fun dinosaurs ready for play.

2 – We also have LEGO Pteranodon Chase and LEGO Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase. It’s amazing how many details are involved, and how fun it is when the raptor can come right through the swinging door and into the lab!

It also must be said that they make the PERFECT bundle gift options for Christmas giving! These exclusive “Battle Damage” products from Walmart are perfect for our household. And Walmart has 2-day shipping which is perfect for you last-minute shoppers! You can also purchase them in-store and have fun perusing the Jurassic World items. I know that’s a lot of fun for us.

In our household, we couldn’t wait until Christmas!

So, get ready to RUN to Walmart! We have a few fun suggestions for how these exclusive Jurassic World toys. For us, it was #1 on Des’ Christmas list, and don’t worry, he’ll still get a few surprises come Christmas morning, of course:

1 – Buy the toys as bundle gift options. That way you’ll be giving your kids a few options for all of the fun you’ll have together during the holiday break, and beyond. I spent a lot of care choosing items that would be fun together.

2 – Have a fun unboxing for your kids this holiday season. You could even wait until the excitement of the holidays is over. Buy a few toys and wrap them up together and have fun watching your kids pull out the Jurassic World fun!

3 – Host a dinosaur-themed play date or party. We did this over the weekend! We invited a bunch of like-minded friends over to build and play. Bonus – it makes for a QUIET play date or party. And the kids get super immersed in play.

4 – The Jurassic World EXCLUSIVE Walmart toys are good for boys and girls. Having one of each kid, I always like to buy toys that will appeal to both. Scarlet is fond of building, she’s fond of science, and she loves that the dinosaurs are all girls, and are strong characters with their own names and personalities. It’s pretty awesome is what it is!

5 – These toys invite hours upon hours of happiness into your home. You absolutely can’t beat that.
