Non Toy Gift Ideas for 2 Year Old Boys and Girls
Not yet old enough to read? No problem! Plenty of kids’ magazines are full of pictures and activities that kiddos and their parents can do together. There’s even magazines for babies! Plus it’s a new, exciting piece of mail that comes every month. Every kid loves getting mail! Suggested: National Geographic Kids Magazine -or- Highlights High Five Magazine
Similarly, a Kindle Fire is totally useful and enjoyable for little kids. Add storybooks that read aloud to your child or even games that teach colors and numbers. My kids loved theirs, and didn’t even realize they were learning!
2 year olds don’t have much of a sense of time, but they certainly will remember if you promise to take them somewhere fun! Trips to the children’s museum, park, movie theatre, bouncy place, etc., are all great experiences where you can make fun memories together. If you’re taking your niece, nephew, or grandchild out, the time off is a gift is for the parents as well:)
Make a mess in the kitchen (your kitchen, preferably) and bake up something yummy for the two of you to enjoy together. Homemade play dough is also super easy to make– especially this recipe with just 2 ingredients!
Not a fan of messes? Get creative and make a mess-free arts & crafts area. You can buy magic markers that only color on certain paper, as well as a set of pens that use water to write. Another idea? Fill a gallon baggie with about a 1/4 cup each of 3 paint colors, tape it shut, and let the kids “write” on the surface with their fingers. Just tape it flat to a table for a fun writing surface. Great way to practice shapes and letters– and no mess!
Have fun this holiday season with the little kids in your family! Non toy gift ideas are a fantastic way to keep 2 year olds busy & happy.
