Buying presents for your kids used to be pretty simple. You get your daughter the latest babydoll and your son a race car or action figure, and they’d be thrilled. Today, however, that’s all changed. There are so many neat things for kids that it can be hard to decide which one to choose. Not to mention, the interests of children have changed so drastically (and change so frequently) from when you were growing up.
Looking for some ideas to make an upcoming birthday extra special? Look no further. We’ve made a huge list of 29 ideas which are perfect for young children. Don’t be put off by the size of the list – we wouldn’t expect you to do all these on a single birthday, the list is long enough to bring in new traditions every year for their entire child years.
With Sunday being Mother’s Day, intu Chapelfield challenged me to spend the morning browsing the shopping centre stores armed with a £40 gift card to see what I could treat myself to. Here lies the problem, I don’t shop well for myself. As I’m walking around I can often spot things for others, but narrowing things down to what I would like to purchase is somewhat of a challenge in itself.
Have you got a birthday party to plan for? A wedding? Perhaps, you’re even looking forward towards Halloween or Christmas get-togethers? Whatever occasion you have in mind, there are definitely benefits to hiring a bouncy castle for your event.
It’s no secret that children just have this calling to draw. And sometimes, that calling means that they don’t necessarily draw on paper, but on other objects around your house as well…Walls, pictures, the dog…you name it, if it’s got a surface, they want to draw on it or colour it. As a parent, how many times have you found yourself staring in disbelief at the art that your little one has done or an object that you know will never come clean, ever again?
The start of school is just around the corner and parents all over the world are getting ready to start shopping for all the much-needed school supplies for their children. With all the products out there to choose from, it can be overwhelming at times to try to narrow it down to a product that is a good value and fit for your child. It’s important to start their school year off with items that will help to enhance their writing skills, not hamper them.
Writing in plain old pen and pencil can be a bit…boring. It’s easy to fall into a creative rut when trying to think of ways to make your writing and cards a bit more fun and over-the-top. Don’t fall prey to thinking that colours and variety don’t matter. With just a few colourful options for your stationery and pens, you can make a card, letter or written greeting truly stand out!
Throwing your child a birthday party can result in a lot of stress, as well as a fair bit of damage to your bank account. Even a party for five to ten kids can lead to sleepless nights spent constructing party decorations, filling goodie bags, and baking cakes and the cost of these things, along with any other party supplies, presents, and surprises can easily set you back a couple of hundred dollars. Your children don’t need all of these things for a great birthday celebration, so consider these birthday party alternatives instead.
