Christmas for our kids....

This year we decided no electronics for the kids for Christmas.  No video games or movies either.  We want things they can all interact with.  Our kids are dd10, ds9, and dd6. 

We are getting all three bikes as their big gift.

All three are also getting nerf guns, walkie talkies, board games, and some random sports equipment.

Any other ideas?

Each is also getting stuff according to their interests, books, and craft stuff.

I am looking for some other stuff that is family oriented and that they can do together. 

 

All have birthdays very close to Christmas so that is when they will get electronics, movies, or video games they want.

Idk I decided this year I wasn't going to worry with shopping for them. I'm just giving them cash and we will take them shopping after Christmas.That way they get what they want and they have time to spend with mom and dad since the new baby will be here right before and steal all the Christmas thunder.

 I think mine would honestly be upset about cash.  They don't really care what it is they get...they are appreicative of whatever.  But they love opening and seeing what we picked for them.

Ours are getting Legos and books.  That's all they wanted this year!  I got them some nerf bows and science kits that I also thought they would like.

Oh yes mine were upset at first but after explaining they will have stuff under the tree from grandparents and aunts and uncles and we will have them two things under the tree. A DVD player and a movie each.
The rest we are going to let them pick themselves. And that excites them lol

 Toys R Us was having a huge board game sale yesterday.  I bought 6 of them.

This honestly makes me sad. You're kids look young in the picture.

I have a 6 year old DD and she wants that pink nerf gun.

Get them old fashioned games like marbles, jacks, exploring with magnifying glasses, Chinese checkers
