Pre-School Gift Guide

My son, Levi, is turning 4 in January, and this holiday season has been so special. He’s now starting to understand the holidays, and he’s getting so excited for them. I feel like I’m re-living my childhood all over again. I’m really intentional with my gifts to him. I focus on his interests (anything vehicle related), and explore those options in games, puzzles, toys, and books. I love toys that challenge him, make him think, uses his imagination, are educational, and he can play with again and again.

Picasso Tiles – This is his big gift this year. These are expensive, but I’m going to purchase them on Black Friday. It seems like everyone raves about these building sets, so I’m excited to get these for Levi to play with.

Kinetic Sand – Levi can spend HOURS playing in the sand with his toys. This is the second-best option during the winter months!

Hot Wheels – I saw this on a blogger’s website and thought it would be a fun gift.

Lite-Brite – This brings back so many memories! I’ve been wanting to get this for Levi for a few years, but I think now’s the perfect time.

Zingo Game – We LOVE game night and having quality time together. The reviews for this game look so good. I’m excited to add this to our stack of board games.

Build-A-Track Puzzle Game – I searched on Amazon for gifts for preschoolers, and this popped up. I’ve never seen anything like it before. You choose a challenge and solve it by building a track. It comes with a little bulldozer that if you build the track successfully the bulldozer will go from start to finish. There’s 118 challenges to solve over 4 different difficulty levels. I’m excited to see how Levi likes this one!

Tangrams – This seems like a great activity for quiet time and for some independent play. Love that it’s magnetic, so we can bring it in the car too.

Transformers – My son watches the show Rescue Bots, which is exactly what these are. Love how they transform from bot mode to vehicle mode. These are great for imaginative play!

Activity Books – Levi’s really into superhero’s right now, and my eyes are on this activity book. It includes mazes, connect the dots, word searches, and spot the difference. How fun! You can browse other activity books here.

Legos – Legos are a staple. My son is just starting to get into them. It’s an activity that we do together with him and help him build.

We love puzzles by Mudpuppy. I’m looking at this construction one or this bulldozer one for Levi! I love this puzzle board, and it looks like it stores easily under your couch.
