I have to be honest, I have only gone shopping for toys in stores ONE day this December! The reason is because I am an Amazon addict! I purchase almost all of my gifts online. I do enjoy going out, but I am super busy this time of year. Plus, school goes until the Friday before Christmas! That leaves online my best and most convenient option and since we are less than two weeks away from Christmas, I wanted to tell you a out some perfect last minute gifts for kids!

I’ve researched these gifts and have prior experience using them with children, for example, I’ve used a marble run with preschool aged children and they loved it. I would never recommend something I wouldn’t purchase myself. I’ve purchased or plan on purchasing these items today!

I’m on a budget and I want to get the most bang for my buck, so I only shop for the best deals! Amazon Prime makes it super easy with 2-Day shipping right to my door. It is a win-win!

Best for Creating and Exploring

Build your own marble run:

Lots if variety with this set! Crate different ways for the marble to make its way down. This is a great STEM toy!

Gem Dig:

One of my boys is all about science and discovering. He absolutely loves Gem Digs! He gets to learn about different types of rocks and gems while digging to find them. This activity can be a bit messy, but I usually just put a cheap plastic table cloth under him as he works. The price also makes this an awesome deal!

Fun for the Whole Family

Laser Tag Set:

Let me tell you how excited we are for this at-home laser tag set. In fact, I’m pretty sure the adults are more excited than the kids! This kit is good for 2 players. If you purchase the separate tower sold at places like Target, up to 16 people can play at the same time! We are looking forward to some fun nights in the back yard this year!

Toilet Trouble Game:

My boys love anything that is gross. They are experts at making anything normal gross. I am sure this game will be a hit since it includes a toilet and having the chance of being squirted in the face with the toilet water. Sounds a bit messy, but fun. Similar to Pie Face.

Stomp Rocket:

There are a few varieties to choose from, but I went with the one that shoots the farthest, 400ft. These are kid powered rockets and I can already think of a few games to play with the kids for this one. The glowing night version seems neat as well.

Gifting Experiences

Local Indoor Attraction:

This one will require a few online searches, but is well worth the time. With the winters we experience here in northeast Ohio, gifting experiences is a must! We have a variety of fun indoor places to purchase gift cards for. Here are some searches that may have similar establishments near you:

  • Rock Gym- rock climbing
