Do you consider yourself a Super Grandparent? I really hope that I will be thought of as a Super Grandparent. To me, a super grandparent is someone who wants the best for their grandchild. The best doesn’t have to be something that is expensive or super time consuming. Super Grandparents are looking for a Christmas gift that a child will use more than once. A super gift is one that brings fun but also lasting impact.
When children are little an interest can blossom into a passion. You wouldn’t think so, but a 4-year old can become passionate or obsessed with a topic that they want to learn everything about. My 4 year old boy was obsessed with Blue’s Clues. He really felt like Blue’s Clues was real and he carried around his handy-dandy notebook, looking for clues. When children love a certain thing, parents and Super Grandparents can take that idea and run with it.
It’s so much fun to take an interest of a child and use that to build greater understanding of the topic. We did that when we were homeschooling and it was fun and very educational to the entire family. Our daughter loved the stars and so I introduced her to constellations. She loved it and took her maps of the stars outside and we looked for Orion and the other shapes.
Learning about basic shapes is a perfect introduction to geometry that will help children when they start school. A Magnetic Shapes Activity Box allows the child to learn to identify the shapes and use their creativity to make unlimited pictures with the shapes. Children won’t tire of this type of game and super grandparents will be so proud of the child and can brag on the artistic abilities.
Young girls usually love unicorns, and if your granddaughter is one of them that does, it would be wise to buy a holiday gift that has a unicorn theme. You could get a unicorn coloring book or stuffed animal, but there are other gifts that would give more creativity and educational benefit. The Unicorn Felt Sewing Kit is made for ages 3+ and is so adorable. A child can complete 4 projects with pre-cut felt and punched holes. The colorful set is one that little girls will love.
Another creative gift is the classic Lite-Brite game. With over 200 colorful plastic pegs, children can follow instructions to make pre-designed pictures or create their very own designs. Children have loved playing with this for many decades. Super Grandparents remember playing with Lite-Brite and will have a blast showing their granddaughter how to play with it.
Games that burn a lot of energy and that can be used over and over are the best. Super Grandparents love to get their grandchildren having fun and getting their wiggles out. A toy like the Scavenger Hunt Game can be the perfect solution. This game has a spinner, timer, and stack of cards. The children must spin and then draw a card. Then the timer is set and the children playing must run to find the object on the card. There are going to be lots of happy squeals when the children laugh as they search for the object on the card. The colored lights will look lovely under a festive Christmas tree.
If you want to be a Super Grandparent, the easiest place to find the perfect gift is online. The child learned his lesson It is so easy and exciting to be a Super Grandparent.
