December 4, 2015

Staying up all night playing Santa Claus around the tree on Christmas Eve is totally worth it come morning—even if you’re still half asleep by time the kids are tearing the gift wrap to shreds.

Knowing you nabbed the perfect thing for the little one in your life might be one of the best feelings out there. This year, skip the video games and electronics, and get the kiddos something a little more creative.

Whether you’ve got a budding artist or future inventor on your hands, these five gift ideas are bound to become instant favorites.

1. Eco Kids Finger Paint (ages 2 and up)

What kid doesn’t love getting messy during arts and crafts? Finger painting is one of the great joys of childhood, and these eco-friendly paints are the best way to fill any little artist’s palette. Made from natural, plant-based dyes, they’re safe for even the tiniest of hands.

2. BeginAgain Shark Tank Bathtub Ball (ages 2 to 5)

This heavy duty rubber playset is ideal for bathtub and summertime pool time play. The shark tank set features a natural rubber shark tank, hero diver with old time diving helmet, rubber octopus, and a shark character.

3. Seedling Color the Earth Inflatable Globe (ages 3 and up)

Little boys and girls will love decorating this inflatable globe with colorful markers. Toss it around the yard, and explore the world with hands-on learning.
