These gifts will bring magic to your tiniest people all year round ages approximately 2-5. They focus on promoting bonding time, facilitating curiosity, and exploring the world around us.
In our family, we subscribe to Self Directed Education and Unschooling, and our son attends an Agile Learning Center. This impacts the choices of gifts we love because we strive to build en environment where children can grow their strengths in an organic fashion. We really think this makes gifts more fun. I invite you to review this list and see if any of these ideas spark your own inner child.
