Lower Elementary Gift Guide to Encourage More Play – Holiday 2023

Lower Elementary kids or 6-9 year olds can feel tricky to shop for, likely they have amassed quite the collection of toys already and you may find they aren’t getting their toys out as much as they age… So what do you get the kid who has so much already and isn’t playing as much as they used to?! My Lower Elementary gift guide is the perfect place to start!

4 year old and 5 year old Gift Guide – 2022 Holiday season

My 4 year old and 5 year old gift guide has a little of everything! From open-ended building to role play to learning and practical life tools and so much more! Some of these are our must-have items that get constant play and others are things we are considering adding to our own home.

As I was sitting down to make my gift guide for 5 year olds I realized that honestly, I was recommending the EXACT same items as my 4 year old guide… Developmentally they are at similar places and enjoying the same toys. True they are no longer preschoolers and are in Kindergarten but beyond that I just wasn’t finding enough different ideas to make it work a new post. So below you will find a little bit of everything for any 4 year old or 5 year old in your life!
