As the holidays quickly approach, I've been racking my brain trying to think of new and exciting gifts for my kiddos.
While their lists are anything but short, I'm doing my best not to go overboard this Christmas like I have in years past. With four kids and number five on her way any second now (seriously, I'm 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant today, but who's counting, right? I'm not sure she's ever coming out!), it already feels like toys are taking over our home.
We've decluttered the toys and playroom multiple times, but someone visiting our home for the first time would probably guess that we'd never gotten rid of anything. It's crazy! We still have too much stuff.
This year, I want their gifts to be meaningful. We have a ton of stuffed animals and character toys. Instead, I want to focus on fun, interactive gifts that have the added benefit of being educational too.
These are some of the best and most fun educational gifts for kids that I've found so far.

I’ve heard about Kiwi Crate for years now, but I only recently discovered that they have a whole series of subscription boxes for kids of all ages: Cricket Crate (0-2), Koala Crate (3-4), Kiwi Crate (5-8), Doodle Crate (9-16+), and Tinker Crate (9-16+). My kids will each be getting one for Christmas since they’re all in different age ranges, though I did resist the newborn box! I can’t wait for them to arrive and for us to give them a try.
