Great gifts for children

With New Year and Christmas just around the corner I needed to make sure I had appropriate gifts for all my loved ones especially the children, a great list of gifts for all my loved ones specially the children. Once I had identified gifts for the children, I got thinking that, like me, there would be more fellow parents on the lookout so as to what gifts could they buy for the coming holidays. Since I had to buy for children across age groups, I did my research accordingly and hence my blog will be about gifts for children across a wider age group. So here goes the list,

 

1. Personalized photo desk calendar or a photo plaque:

One can choose 13 of the most fun moments with the child and actually get a desk calendar made; I have made many such calendars every year, as my daughter loves these personal calendars, the grandparents love it more. It’s fun, useful and whimsical all at the same time.

Age group: All age groups
Price: Rs 399/-

2(A). Green science potato clock kit:

Children learn to power a digital clock with potatoes and can then use their experimental skills to find out other substances, which may power the clock. They'll be amazed! I have seen it happen at my neighbor’s house. The Kit includes all the bits and pieces to make the clock, with detailed instructions. All you have to supply, are the veggies!
Age group: 8+ years.
Price: Rs 270/-

 

B. Wind powered Car

wind
Lets get our children to have fun and playtime but also reward them with the joy of getting creative. The wind and the rotating large blades in this car generate kinetic energy. A drive shaft connects to the power plant where kinetic energy is converted to another form of energy, which causes the car to propel. Wind powered car will move in forward direction, irrespective of wind direction.

3.Fruit Guard: Apple/ Banana / sandwich box:

 

fruit gurad

My daughter was fed up having to eat bruised apples or peaches that have been punctured by stuff in her Backpack. The Fruit Guard is specially designed to fit the average size larger round fruit such as apples, pears and peaches however its use is certainly not limited to holding just these fruit. Not only is the Fruit Guard made of sturdy, FDA approved plastic but also features a carabineer hook so that it can easily be attached to the outside of your child’s backpack. A sturdy locking mechanism prevents premature opening and there is ventilation so that the fruit doesn't end up fermenting!
What’s more….The tops and bottoms of the Fruit Guard are interchangeable with the other colors available so your child can make his/her favorite color combination.

Price: Rs 395/-
Age group: All age groups

Guard your sandwich: Well, another great addition to a child’s school backpack is this sandwich box. The sandwich does not get squished and no need of using a foil or plastic wrap. It makes a cute couple with the fruit box.
Price: Rs 385/-.
Age Group: All age groups
