I’m fairly certain that as each year passes from here on out, I will feel extra blessed to have 3 believers under one roof. My gosh, kids at school talk and I am so happy that it has not altered our boys nostalgia in any way. I wanted to show you guys a few of the items we picked up for the boys, for some reason as they get older they are getting harder to shop for. Thankfully Amazon always has my back and I was able to find a fun variety of toys/games etc to keep them grinning ear to ear Christmas morning!
Bring it on Christmas, the Thome’s are ready!
Everyday in our house, or if you are lucky enough to get pulled into a game of “would you rather?” at a family get together with our boys, their wild imagination will leave you cracking up. Their version usually gives you the option of, “would you rather eat poop, or drink pee?” So glad I stumbled across this game for them – giving them less gross-boy-saying to splurt out.
Lego Dimensions and a new Skylanders starter pack were hot on the list. They have Skylanders already and play it all the time. Collecting the characters (that’s where they get your $$) get them really excited. Twister was my idea, and I know they will love it. I think I just wanted to test my flexibility after 3 kids – maybe I should try this alone first??
K’nex are always a favorite with our boys. I think it is the wide range of motion they can get once they create a piece, easy to build and no guilt associated with breaking them down. Legos on the other hand, boy, I have such a love/hate relationship with them. I adore how they challenge the boys, and keep them busy for hours. However, I turn into a jerk and want the boys to keep them together because they are expensive. And we all know once they break, they stay apart in a bucket of random pieces – forever. (And yet we still bought at least 10 kits) Science experiments are Owen’s jam. We always do little ones in the kitchen after school, so I snagged one of these kits for each of the boys to keep them occupied on the upcoming winter days. Oh! And the Play Doh! Guys, are your kids still into Play Doh? Because my boys are still totally into it! They will spend hours pretending and whipping up treats and concoctions!
Magformers are all the rage, and for all of the right reasons. If you have a little builder on your hands, look into these magnetic building blocks that your kids will love! The item I am sure we will regret when it gets lodged in a tree, drones. But the boys really want them, so of course Santa’s elves figured it out. These cute ride on carts will be perfect to roll up and down our trail, can’t wait for spring already! A little boys Christmas is not complete without a nerf gun – another one for the toy bucket 🙂
A few of the best (in my opinion) for last! Oh these viral chewbaca masks, I want one for me. The rugrats play store all the time, so these registers that add and subtract will be an awesome addition to their playtime! Dan and I had the boys open up these letter popsicles today, for Owen to practice with and the quality is amazing and I would highly reccomend them for anyone with a little one learned his/her letters! Last but not least, Star Wars nesting dolls! Enough said!
We have a few more boxes to go through, trying to remind ourselves all of the things we’ve thrown into the Amazon cart of the month. Boxes and boxes are stacked in our closet, and the kids believe it to be mom and dads work packages. So far, so good. A ton of these items (if not all) are available via Amazon Prime, so if you are still shopping, snag a few!
Say goodbye to your bank account in 3 …. 2 …..
