Gift Ideas for Kids (Ages 8 and up) 2018

blog , , , , ,

Figuring out what to get your child for Christmas can be challenging. I have complied a list of some great gifts for the kids on your list!

  1.   This gift is for ages 8 and up.  Bloxels allows your child to design their own video game.  They use the small blocks to create each screen or level of the game.  My son loved making a game that was challenging for me to play. (Not that that is much of a challenge!)
  2.   This is probably best for 10 and up.  If your child has great fine motor skills perhaps a younger child could do it with out too much frustration.  I first made a copy to try out different types of pen/marker to use. For me, a fine tip marker was best.  A fine tip sharpie works fine, but it's such a fine tip you have to color in some of the spots quite a bit.
  3.   We have not tried this game yet, but it looks like a lot of fun and is reasonably priced.
  4.   This is awesome for the Marvel fan in your life! My kids both enjoy looking though this book.  There are so many fact in this book, it will take a long time to read it all.
  5. In case your super hero fan is more of a DC fan, then this is the book for you! We already have the Marvel encyclopedia so this is on our list this year!
  6. These are much cheaper than the shoes with the built in wheels and you don't have to worry about getting the right size!
  7. If you live in a place that gets snow, this looks like a lot of fun, (unless your my age and it just looks painful!) I know so many kids that would love to take this down a hill!
  8. Here is a reasonably priced hover board.  This is still a cool must have for many kids.
  9. Our family loves this game. We play it inside, camping or at the beach! We prefer this brand because of the great customer service. According to reviews that we read before purchasing the company will replace parts if you leave them in a hot car and accidentally warp them!
  10. There are many reasons I love this game. The main reason is that everyone that plays either wins or looses as a team! You don't play against each other, but you work together to survive!  This really helps keep the sibling rivalry to a minimum, for a little while anyway!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  What gifts do you recommend for kids? What are your favorites? Share your top picks!
