Happy Friday!

It’s time for another Friday Favorites with Toys for Toddlers. I have put together a list of my girls’ favorites!

 Fraturtles. We love this book. A lot of twin books that I found have been about identical twins. This book is about fraternal twins, twins that don’t look alike.

Bubbles! Is there anything more fun than bubbles? My girls could play with bubbles all day long.

 Glow sticks. Another favorite around our house. Such a great gift idea for the kiddos.

 Magnetic building toys. These are so much fun! Even my husband and I love playing with them. It’s so awesome to see how creative your littles can be with these.

Magnetic Drawing Boards. The girls will spend so much time, drawing and erasing, drawing and erasing.

Paint. They love painting and sometimes it makes it to the paper instead of Sissy’s arm. Just make sure it’s washable, because, like I said, they will paint each other.

Walkie Talkies. For us, it is Minnie Mouse all the way! Granted, the girls are totally sure how to use them yet, but they LOVE them. They will go into different rooms and yell, “Can you hear me, Sissy??” They will get it. In the meantime, it’s very entertaining to watch. 

 LeapFrog Scribble and Write. This is so cool! I love learning toys so much. This teaches them how to write their letters and numbers. The excitement on their faces when they each wrote the letter to their first names was priceless. Proud Mommy Moment!

 Playdough. What kid doesn’t love playdough? You can buy it or make it yourself. Check out this post and see how easy it is to make at home.

Dollhouses and playsets. For Christmas, the girls got 3 different playhouse/playsets and they have played with them every day since. They are really into Puppy Dog Pals.

I love Christmas time! The cool weather. The snow. The Christmas tree. The stockings. Love it all! I have to say, though, that sometimes I get so stressed thinking of gifts for my littles. I know I can’t be the only one. I have put together a list of some great gift ideas for toddlers. Enjoy!

1. Dress up clothes. My girls love to play dress up. Last year, they got a ton of tutus and they still use them. This year, the girls have asked for a magic hat and magic wand. I love their imaginations! How fun is this? And I love the Disney princess dress up clothes too! And what child doesn’t love to be a super hero?!

2. I love gifts that my kids will use for more than a couple months. This tent is so adorable! Perfect for reading time, living room “camp outs”, and so much more.

3. Books, books, and more books! We always get each child a book for Christmas. I have loved reading since I was a child and it’s so important for us to instill that same love of reading into our children.

4. When it comes to toys, I love learning toys. There are so many great ones to choose from. Here are a few of my favorites:

The Leapfrog Learn and Scribble is a favorite of my girls. It is great for teaching little ones their letters and numbers and how to trace. The twins have shown a lot of interest in clocks recently, so the learning clock is definitely on our wish list this year.

5. Arts and crafts. I’m going to be putting together an arts kit for the kiddos. Construction paper, finger paints, crayons, safety scissors, etc. This is a great thing to have on hand especially in the coming days and months when the little ones (and parents) will be getting cabin fever.

6. Our girls love to build things and we recently discovered the coolest things ever: Magnetic Building Tiles. You have to check these out!

7. Experiences! I love the idea of experiences and making memories. Family memberships to the zoo and/or local childrens museum. Is there a  trip you want to take the family on in the coming year? Gymnastics or karate lessons that they would love?

What’s on your toddler’s wish list this year? I’d love to hear your ideas!
