Do you find yourself thinking, “My kids have too many toys as is; why add to the craziness!” I have found myself on this boat and I came up with a list of gift ideas for me and my family to give my boys. This list has gifts your child will still be excited about but you won’t have to add it to the toy pile. Sorry, no socks and underwear on this list!
1. How to draw books
Give your child a book that breaks down how to draw animals or draw their favorite character. Your child will spend hours drawing and will be so pleased with how great their drawings look!
