My daughters are at a tricky age for gift buying. They’re less into dolls and role play type games, although they do still enjoy a good game of school on occasion, I try to avoid screen time where possible so tablets are not an option and they’re still at an age where clothes are a necessity rather something to be bought for pleasure. It’s taken me a while but I’ve searched around the internet and found some brilliant products that are slightly grown up, but also fun enough for two little girl, so hopefully we’ll have some surprises and big smiles on Christmas Day.
We have constant arguments in the car about what music to listen to, so I thought headphones would allow them to listen to their own music and give me a bit of peace and quiet, which is often much needed. Or if they need a bit of quiet time in the day they can disappear to their room and listen to music or an audiobook.
The Little Rockerz Costume headphones have a volume limiter for safe listening and a 1.2m coiled cable for safety. The ear pads are soft and comfortable and the buddy jack allows children to share devices. There are 5 different options available. We especially love the panda!
I find with 3 children we need quick, fast paced games to stop everyone getting bored. Dobble is easy enough for all of them to play and fun at the same time.
We’re big fans of FIMO. I remember using it to make a Mother’s Day badge at Brownies many years ago, so LOVE seeing my children create with it too. There are lots of fantastic inexpensive FIMO kits available.
