There were so many amazing gift ideas for kids at my local Barnes & Noble, I had a hard time deciding what to get! I finally picked out several awesome things for my stepson (which I have to keep secret since he reads this), and the following gifts for my niece.

Lite Brite – yep, that classic toy we all know and love,is now better than ever. This set comes with 150+ fun shaped pegs, containers to store them in and the first-ever reusable templates. You can even buy refill packs which come with different-themed templates and more fun-shaped pegs. It’s a great toy for encouraging creativity!

Kinetic Sand Sandcastle Kit – a great STEM toy, this royal purple-colored kinetic sand won’t stick to hands, is easy to clean up, never dries out and is wheat, gluten and casein free. It comes with 3 molds, a tool and its own play space.

New Sprouts Picnic – is filled with everything she needs to go on imaginative picnics including a basket, food, plates and utensils. Made for little hands, it’s ideal for encouraging imaginative play.
