AP Friendly Toy Ideas

Guest Author - Julie Renee Holland

Finding gifts that promote attachment parenting is not always easy. Here are a few of my top picks for gifts that strengthen families, encourage creativity, and develop a child's mind while they entertain.

Dinner Games from Magic Cabin

This boxed set of laminated cards will inspire hundreds of fun dinners. 51 different ideas for games that your family can play at the dinner table. No pieces to lose, just fun interaction for the whole family. Studies show that sit down dinners can increase a child's grades and help them to develop a rich vocabulary. Playing family games is a great way to make dinner fun and keep kids in their seats without hassle.

Magic Cabin - Kathe Kruse Doll

Of course, dolls are a great way to encourage creative play and the nurturing we model through attachment parenting. These Waldorf style dolls from Kathy Kruse are handmade and beautiful. They are based on fairy tale characters so there is plenty of spark for little imaginations. Soft and just the right size!

Arts & Crafts at HearthSong

Hearthsong art kits make me want to order some just for myself! They have creative ideas, lots of quality materials, and good instructions. Working on a craft project together is a great way to deeepen your bond with your child. As they grow, this is a great way to reconnect.

Sno Baller

With winter upon us, snow fun is around the corner. These cute snow toys make building a fort easy and stocking up on snowballs a cinch. Create fun family memories with a romp in the snow and a friendly snowball competition. The block maker allows kids to create elaborate walls and forts. The snow baller can also be used to create snow scupltures from snowballs joined together.

Bird Feeder

Birdwatching is a fun way to foster a love of nature and an activity that can be enjoyed by all ages. You'll find bird feeders, a cute holiday bird house, and other birding supplies at the Garden Supply Center link above. If you homeschool, birding is a way to build fun into science, ecology, zoology and biology lessons.
