Bright Ideas

A handsome Somebody is about to turn five.

(I know...I almost can't type that without turning into a blubbering mess.)


I'm looking for birthday gift ideas.


I want things that are timeless but will keep his attention. No loud, obnoxious toys. Educational, imagination-inspiring, enriching. Better toys.


Any ideas?

Puppets, stage, music cds from the christian book store....he can add puppets and eventually start a puppet ministry. Brandon loved it and was really good at it. We still have a couple but eventually donated them to our last church's children's ministry. He did music cd's and would do specials at church, vbs, etc. We started a kids puppet ministry at our church and I got other kids involved. The kids could make puppets too, I got most of our people puppets through christian book stores but we had animals too.

puppets is a cute idea :)

all I can think is "legos"...it is all the way boy classic...but I kind of figure you already have some.

I'll keep thinking though...

My brother had a set of Tinkertoys and we both played with them A LOT...a good set of wooden blocks is great fun as well. They were also great favorites in my kdg classroom through the years. When my Miss M turned 5, she received a subscription to High Five, the preschool version of Highlights. She liked it the first year, but had outgrown it by the next year.

Have you thought about starting a collection of something for him? Reid collected coins when he was young and still has them and talks about them all the time. Give him a really nice old gold coin, not only does it have history, it is also worth something. Perhaps give him a European coin and peak his interest in traveling.

Parker received a collection box at that age, and it has been one of his favorites. He is 6 and 1/2 and he still sleeps with it next to his bed, and sometimes even IN his bed. He keeps memories or special items in there that he does not have to share with anyone else. Special things to a boys heart. He has a few special baseball cards, his Disney World autograph book, a few hot wheels cars, his sketch pad....
