I'm thinking of doing more sensory stuff this year than toys. Like more sensory bins, climbing stuff, a bar to hang on. Last year my mom got my son a mini trampoline and it is the most loved toy in our house.

You won't regret it! We got one with a bar and now Xander twirls around that thing like a star gymnast!

That's a good idea... My son loves to climb but other than that I think he'll be afraid to jump in the trampoline... We bought him a motorcycle for his birthday he likes it but he's scared to go in I have tried to put him there and he starts crying :( .... Thank you for your ideas :)

Sometimes it can b hard to choose.He isn't really interested in spiderman or batman like his cousins so I tell my sisters to buy him something electronic or Mario.

We have a trampoline and Reid loves it, also he loves swings...We spend a lot of time outdoors here in Arizona so the trampoline and swings can be used year round. For indoors,I do sensory stations like puzzles, sewing cards or blocks and playdough. Happy Holidays!
