Gifts for children
Graduation in kindergarten is an important stage in the life of any child. At this moment, carefree childhood ends to some extent, and gradual maturation begins, which implies the first manifestations of responsibility. Therefore, it is important to make this holiday bright and memorable, and choose gifts that not only please, but also benefit.
Even if it is planned to arrange an enchanting show with animators, soap bubbles and a magician at the graduation in kindergarten, there should still be at least a small gift for children from their parents. In any case, a graduate will be pleased to receive at least some memorable symbol that allows him to remember this day in a few years. When choosing a gift for a future first grader, you should still focus on the wishes of the baby, and not his parent. Of course, adults would prefer smart and serious presents, for example, an umbrella, but this is unlikely to please children.
At the end of kindergarten, you should give something both spectacular and practical. Even if the choice is for a “first grader set,” it should be designed in an interesting style, with unusual details and accessories, such as erasers in the form of slices of pizza or ice cream, and some sets of modern stickers. By the way, you can choose an individual design for each child so that everyone enjoys a personal approach, but at the same time does not worry about the fact that another child’s gift turned out to be better and more interesting.
Nevertheless, the release should not be accompanied by some expensive and luxurious present. After all, not for all parents, a large amount will be lifting, and an expensive gift is not necessarily pleasing and memorable. An expensive fountain pen will certainly be needed for first grade, but it is unlikely to please any child. Graduates are also not recommended to give something from clothes or hygiene items.
Both varieties are not perceived by children as something festive, and therefore will not please children at all.
To give the guys a good and original gift, you will have to be creative and first study the various ideas available in various sources. For example, graduates should form a set to study the world around them. It may include a flashlight, binoculars or a magnifying glass, a handy organizer for nature finds, as ll as a handy container to take snacks with you, and a water bottle. A wonderful present will be a night light projecting a picture of the night sky onto the ceiling. It will not only transform the child’s bedroom for the better, but also help him fall asleep faster.
Quite simple, but at the same time, an original gift will be a certificate for a joint event or a ticket to some interesting place. The list of possibilities is huge: a water park, an amusement park, a cinema, a circus, a theater, a zoo, a culinary master class, a drawing lesson and others. Unusual toys are also suitable, for example, a puppet theater, robots, favorite characters from films and TV shows. Bookstores sell a large number of interesting collections with stickers, puzzles and puzzles that will keep any child busy for a long time.
Surely the children will like those gifts that will allow them to spend time with their parents. For example, it can be a designer-house, all the furniture inside of which is created independently. The whole family will spend long hours carefully gluing ladders, chairs and cabinets together. It’s great to get an unusual coloring book, suitable even for adults, and a set of multi-colored pencils as a gift. A thick book with illustrations from “Harry Potter” that you can fill in with colors together, both children and their parents will like it. Designers made of plastic tubes “Tykon” are popular. Individual parts can twist, shrink, buckle and change in size, allowing you to create three-dimensional volumetric images.
Do not forget about the opportunity to present gifts to children that will remind them of the kindergarten throughout their lives. These can be cups engraved with the names of the guys and pleasant words, for example, “the most obedient”, “the most active”, “the most artistic”, “the most economic”. It’s nice to get a puzzle with a photo of all the guys in the group, and a photo album with all the bright moments of kindergarten life for graduation. Solutions such as a T‑shirt with the band’s logo, a notebook and a sketchbook with it, or the same bag for changing shoes are also suitable. Be sure to prepare a large cake with figurines of children or their names placed in such a way that each child receives a personal piece.
Of course, the possible choice of gifts increases if you buy them by gender — separately for boys, and separately for girls. In this case, children’s cosmetics sets, small dolls with outfits, magazines for girls, furniture for princesses or DIY jelry making kits are suitable for young princesses.
In this case, it is customary for boys to buy robots, cars, prefabricated models of equipment, comics with superheroes or other paraphernalia of popular characters.
Perhaps one of the most useful options is a book, both fiction and an encyclopedia. You need to choose a book of high quality and interesting, with a fairly large font and attractive illustrations. If the choice is made in favor of the encyclopedia, then it is worth choosing a topic that will be useful in the first years of study. For example, it can be dedicated to the animal world, some natural phenomena or the history of your native country. When fiction is purchased as a gift, you should make sure that none of the children have such a book yet.
Board games and educational constructors or puzzles are a good gift. Since the stores offer a large selection of such goods, from chess to huge puzzles, it is worth focusing on the age of the children. In any case, such a gift will appeal to both kindergarten students and their parents. Another great solution is to purchase a kit for creativity or science. In the first case, the children will learn how to sew, make soap or collect decorative items, sculpt and draw, create appliqués or even burn patterns, as ll as paint pictures by numbers. In the second, children can be presented with kits for chemical experiments, assembling models or physical experiments. The guys will obviously be delighted if they are offered to create a mini-volcano or grow crystals.
In principle, before school, a set for study will be a very useful gift. It is better to form it depending on the financial capabilities of the parents. Alternatively, the gift includes stationery, a pencil case, notebooks and notepads, folders, a set for labor lessons, or even a diary. The same gifts include a stylish alarm clock with cartoon characters, as ll as an unusual globe. An interesting solution would be a large map, on which, with the help of a coin, those countries that a person has visited should be marked. On the one hand, such a gift will allow you to study geography, and, on the other hand, it contains an element of the game that children need.
In principle, 6–7 years is still the time when sets for games in various professions will appeal to you. Boys will surely appreciate a set of tools like dad has, and girls will love their own set of dishes. It is important for a child to develop not only the mind, but also the body, so buying gifts for sports and outdoor activities is a good idea.
Probably, roller skates or a scooter will turn out to be too expensive gifts, but badminton rackets, a ball, a frisbee or a swimming set will be appropriate.
What can be done with your own hands?
If there are skilled fathers in the group, and even mothers, then they can make each child a cool slate board on which to draw with crayons. It is very easy to use: children will be able to draw various pictures, quickly erase what they have drawn and create a new masterpiece. Having tried, you can also make a magnetic board on which you draw with markers. Such an item will help a lot with your studies, because on the surface you can write, create pictures, and hang pictures with work cards.
Moms who know how to cook can work together to bake personalized cookies or cupcakes for the kids.
Goodies can be decorated with some symbol of the kindergarten, as ll as the name of the child.
An unusual gift can be a piece of decor created by yourself. It can be a personalized painting, a mural, a mobile, a pencil holder or a photo frame. In principle, today’s hand-made allows you to create very beautiful and sincere toys. As an option, for boys it may turn out to be some kind of home-made wooden constructor, and for girls — cozy soft animals. A cool idea would be handmade pillows decorated with images of popular movie and cartoon characters.
Active parents, instead of buying a gift that not everyone will like, can organize a fun outdoor party — a full-fledged picnic with barbecue and games. Let some adults be responsible for the entertainment program and quests, some for a plentiful table, and some for transporting the entire fun company. Of course, there should be no alcohol at the event.
If you have funds, money and a great desire, then you can independently create an unusual board game, the characters of which are kindergarten students and teachers, and arrange everything in a box with a photo of the whole group.
By the way, an important component of the gift should be a film made from videos from various matinees, sports competitions and events, or just a disk with a photo archive and all these videos.
