  • You mean as gifts? Go to the dollar store. I was amazed at all the toys they had. Look online at craigslist. Kids don't care if it's used

  • Funny, my question to myself is how not to buy. I am a big believer in gifts that promote experiences (zoo membership, movie tickets, children's museum) or that promote creativity. I suggest no fad items and go for classic toys.

  • Some art supplies. Drawing paper, construction paper, crayons, kid scissors, glue sticks, tape, markers.

    Scarves, hats & other dress-up supplies from a second-hand store. If you live where it snows, get a kid-sized snow shovel (check the grocery store for that, or else a hardware store.) Or get a kid-sized plastic push lawnmower (in the toy section of stores like K-Mart, maybe even Target.) That's a seasonal (summer) item but they might still have them on the shelves, especially if you live where it doesn't snow. My 3 year olds LOVED to push around a lawn mower in the yard, and they loved shoveling snow. You can also get kid-sized leaf rakes.
