Last Minute Christmas Shopping


I’m finishing up my Amazon purchases for Christmas gifts (thank goodness for Amazon Prime!!). (I posted a few other ideas here.)

My boys love ThinkFun Rush Hour, so I think they will get a kick out of Solitaire Chess and Turnstile in addition to the Perplexus Twist (a game for each boy).

I purchased a signed, personalized, hand-illustrated copy of The First Dragon for Levi, but I needed something very different for Luke and Leif. Then I found the perfect books for their personalities:


Guinness World Records 2014 (Luke has been begging for this one), TIME for Kids Big Book of What (a fun series including books about Where, Why, and How), and 5,000 Awesome Facts (About Everything!) (National Geographic Kids) (National Geographic Kids has several great books to choose from). I know they will pour over these books for hours and hours!

Now I’m trying to go through my list and see if I’ve missed anything…

Are you finished with your Christmas shopping?

What age would be good for introducing Perplexus Twist? My boys are 6.

Also, what are your favorite family board games for that same age range? We aren't big game players, but would like to work on doing that as a family a bit more!

Ian loves those kinds of books too! He lives for quirky facts. It's always tough trying to decide which book(s) to give him -- I'm sure that's a problem to which you can easily relate.
