The Best Holiday Gift Guide for Kids Ages 5-8

November 23, 2020 in Gift Guides, I Adore What I Love

Alright! So I’ve shared my gift guide for babies, my gift guides for toddler boys and toddler girls, and now it’s time to tackle kids ages 5-8. They’re in their prime kid stage, they have opinions, know what’s good, but still like to PLAY. And the gifts I’ve picked out for this age group are all about serious PLAYING. And having fun! Let’s take a look at them below!

Shop the gifts:

Time to share the deets on these awesome gifts starting from the top left, clockwise:

Kids Construction Fort Building Kit: This is the ultimate fort builder kit. You can even include a sheet with the gift so whoever is getting it has something to cover it with to finish off the fort!

Osmo Creative Starter Kit: My boys are BIG fans of their Osmo and this Creative Starter Kit comes with alllll the goodies. Including an Osmo base & reflector for iPad, new creative board, 4 dry erase markers, microfiber eraser pouch, stackable storage for each game & 3 game apps: Monster, Newton, and Masterpiece. It provides hours and hours of fun! If you have the Amazon Fire Tablet, click here to buy the one compatible with that!!

Jumbo Connect 4 Game Set: Ok, so they call it 4-to-Score but to me, it will always be Connect 4. We have it, courtesy of ECR4Kids and let me tell you, it is THE MOST FUN!!!!! Truly for any age, but I think 5 is the youngest because it’s too tall for anyone younger!

Mega Maze – Portable Travel Mazes: It’s not often you see travel toys that fit the bill for kids age 5-8. But this totally does! It’s a portable maze set that comes with 50 mazes at 3 levels of difficulty. So fun!

VTech KidiZoom Creator Cam: This is the coolest! Essentially, it’s a video camera for kids that features HD recording, flip-up lens for self-recording, a 2.4″ screen and a wrist strap. Plus, kid-friendly video editing!

Kids Fitness Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor: Shhhh, don’t tell Brody and Levi but they are getting this from my parents! It’s waterproof, counts steps, and even has a sleep tracker aspect to it! Cool!

Twister: A classic game that truly NEVER gets old!!!

DIY Glow-in-the-Dark Slime Kit: This slime pack, by Zen Laboratories is a step above the rest! Not only is it glow-in-the-dark {which is crazy cool in itself!!} but here’s what it includes: 18 different colored slimes, 3 cutting/shaping utensils, 2 plastic straws, 12 vials of colored glitter, 2 bags of sugar paper, 3 bags of beads, 6 bags of foam balls. WOW!!!!!!!!

Pie Face Cannon Game: This game is pure FUN! If you are confused as to what it really is, well, let me enlighten you! One player puts their chin on the chin rest behind the facemask. The other player aims the cannon and launches whipped cream at their face. See, I told you. Pure fun! And silliness! And yumminess! Ha!

Laser Tag Set: Love this because it’s so unique and for the active kids in your life! You can play with up to 4 players and it includes REAL target vests and REAL blasters!

Wireless 4 in 1 Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone: This can be used as a karaoke microphone, bluetooth speaker, loudspeaker, and recorder! Plus, it lights up and has almost 5 stars out of 3,400 reviews!

Double Dutch Jump Rope: Double dutch brings me back to the days of elementary school recess! My friends and I loved to play and it’s still just as much fun now as it was then! Introduce your kids to this classic jumprope game and they’ll get get their energy out + have the best time! It’s also a great gift if you have 3 kids because they can all play together!

Let’s Color America Coloring Poster: I LOVE this giant poster! Keep your little artist busy all winter long by coloring America. This won’t be done overnight but it’s a good lesson to teach your kids that Rome wasn’t built in a day. But it’s always worth it!

Licensed Mercedes Benz 12V Kids Ride On Cars: These cars are truly life-like!!! We have the red one and the boys LIVE for it. With a full-on radio, working seatbelts, horn, and steering wheel, what’s not to love?! Buy the RED ONE or buy the PINK ONE – can’t go wrong and whoever you’re gifting it too will love you forever! Ha!
