How to inspire your child with creative gifts



Look for something that will stimulate the mind and also keep little hands busy. Here a few creative gifts for kids.

Childhood is period of fantasy and adventure filled with curiosity, exploration and the constant thrill of discovering something new. Skip the regular toys and the temptation of gifting gadgets like tablets. Instead, give them a creative gift and they are sure to be overjoyed

Gift musical instruments based on the age of the child, a tambourine, mouth organ or a flute will work for small children while pre-teens and teens can be gifted instruments like a keyboard or guitar. These will spark an interest in music and before you know it, they would have learnt to play tunes on them or even make their own music!

Puppets are a great way to spark a child’s imagination and encourage him or her to make their own stories and enact them. You can gift glove puppets, string puppets and even a puppet theater set.

Children when given the right tools can create art with such vibrant colors and themes that you would have never dreamt possible! Gift something that allows them to express themselves innovatively, say a sand art kit, a fashion designer kit, an origami pack, a painting box and so on.

Science gifts are a great way to introduce children to the wonders of Science and enjoy the subject. While choosing, make sure they are age appropriate, for smaller kids go for simple ones like a toy binoculars or a Doctor set, for older children, you can choose from the wide range of Chemistry kits, robot assembly kits, microscopes and Bubble Science kits.

A creative experience is a priceless gift. Take the children to a pottery class or a craft class where they get to learn to deign and make something that they will be really proud of.
Want to give a customized gift? Make a collage of the child’s pictures and get this printed onto a large poster. Get the child’s photograph printed on a T-shirt or a mug and add a fun line about the child, he or she is bound to be thrilled. These ideas should help you hunt down the perfect creative gift.
