Come on! He’s turning 7. Don’t kids that age still need toys?
So now I’m struggling to figure out what to get him for his birthday. And, what to get him for Christmas! Sigh . . .
I bet that you have some grandkids that are in the same boat — lots of toys. With Christmas coming soon, that puts you in a predicament. What can you give your grandkids?
I have a terrific solution for you. Reading Incentive Kits!
I reviewed them last year. Take a moment to read my review.
The Reading Incentive Kits come with a well-known children’s book so you know the book is high quality. It also has a series of numbered surprise packages and a “think piece” related to the story to help kids with their reading comprehension.
My grandson really enjoyed the book that came with the kit. And, he could hardly wait to open up the surprise packages to see what was in them.
He was totally thrilled with his kit! And so was I.
These reading kids are especially effective for children who are struggling with reading. They pique a child’s interest and motivate him to read.
They have kits for some of my favorite kids’ books:
- Indian in the Cupboard
- Bud, Not Buddy
- Number the Stars
- Summer of the Monkeys
- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
- several books in the Magic Tree House series
- The Boxcar Children
So to answer your question about what to give your grandkids for Christmas, give them the gift of reading. That’s so much more lasting than a plastic toy that would soon get broken and discarded.
Those good folks at Reading with RIK are letting me offer my readers a 15% discount. Take a moment right now and check out all of the kits that they offer. There are lots to choose from.
(You know, making a purchase on-line is so much easier than battling the crowds at the mall!)
To get your 15% discount, use the code Grandma-RIK with your purchase. This offer lasts until Christmas.
(Note: I did not receive any remuneration for writing about these kits and my opinions are my own.)
