First and foremost, kids love gifts. Just the word “gift” can make them squeal. They also love to play, create fun art projects, and eat candy. That pretty much sums up what being a kid is. So if your grandson or granddaughter has made the big leap and is graduating from preschool, here are some preschool graduation gift ideas:
- Practical Gifts: Ice cream bowl, Piggy bank, Lunch boxes, Backpacks, Kid's watches
- Artsy Gift Baskets: Painting set, Crayola kids fun box, Play dough
- Fun Gift Baskets: Magic kit, Science kit, Spy kit, Movie tickets
- Giftcards: Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins, Kid’s museum
- Candy: Chocolate gift box, assorted gummies gift box
- Lego sets: Small Lego, large Lego, themed Lego
- Theme park seasonal pass: Water parks, local inexpensive theme parks
Artsy Gift Baskets
Artsy gift baskets make great preschool graduation gift ideas from grandparents. You can get an assortment of Crayola crayons or a fun DIY jewelry set. Kids love to paint so a watercolor set would be fun. A gift basket with different color play dough will entertain them for hours. The beauty of an artsy gift basket is it can teach your kid how to be creative and how to develop their artistic skills. Any kit that lets them draw, color, or paint allows them to exercise and develop their nonverbal, intuitive right side of the brain.
The Big Fun Kids Activity & Treats Box
Fun Gift Baskets
By preschool, kids have usually figured out places they wish to visit over and over again. Anything that sells donuts, candy, or ice cream probably tops their list. Gift cards to places like Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins, Mrs. Fields, or Cold Creamery make scrumptious preschool graduation gift ideas. Free ice cream for three months? Of course they’ll love it. One of our favorites, though, is a giftcard to a kid's museum. Kid's museum are one of the best inventions for kids. It's a tactile museum where they get to learn and play for hours. They get to climb, build, touch animals, learn about nature, learn about science, and run around until they're exhausted. It doesn't get any better than that.
Lego sets top everyone's list because it’s a simple concept that provides tons of fun. It’s also educational as it teaches kids the fundamentals of building and design. Themed-Lego sets make ideal preschool graduation gift ideas from grandparents. There’s nothing cooler than building a Star Wars spacecraft from lego or a Ninjago temple. They’re challenging in the best way as they teach patience and concentration. Not to mention they fire up kids' creativity and imagination.
Theme park season pass
This doesn’t have to be an expensive theme park. There are fantastic water parks that run just over the summer or smaller, local theme parks that are excellent. A theme park, quite frankly, is a gift that keeps on giving. Your grandchild won’t get to go just once. He or she will get to go all summer or throughout the year.The above are just a few ideas that are sure to please the little guy or gal who has just finished preschool. Get something special, get something artsy, but above all, get something fun.
