It’s been a year and I think we’re all ready for a little holiday magic – am I right? With kids, magic can be created in so many different ways, and it honestly doesn’t have to cost a fortune. We’ve got options for everyone – big, small, DIY and, of course, a few that should help inspire some winter playtime outside!
These crayons are anything but basic. Our friend over at Art2TheExtreme hand pours each and every crayon, so no two are alike! They come in so many cute shapes, and you can even custom order your kids' names!
Our sister company, Foothill Toy Co., has the cutest little Matchbox Mice that fit perfectly in a stocking! They’re simple and adorable, and the options for imaginative play are endless!
We absolutely love these new puzzles from one of our designers, Elena Essex. They’re not only beautiful, but they’re fun for the kiddos and educational too!
We have to share the Boise love here and Lovevery is our hometown favorite! Their organic cotton tunnel is sure to be a hit when you’re cooped up inside. Such a great way to burn off some toddler energy!
And this one’s for anyone who needs a little “me time.” With the whole family at home these days, even our littles need a place to call their own. These pop-up bed tents are great for a quiet reading spot or cozy fort. Bonus – they may even help with a better night’s sleep!
Outdoor Play & Winter Gear
My girls are avid skiers, so this hoodie just speaks to me. But check out the whole line from Heyday. They’re based in Bozeman, and they have so many fun winter options. Psst – the "ski like a girl" hoodies come in women’s sizes too!
One of our all-time favorite partners @1000HoursOutside recently launched logo gear! This pom-pom beanie just looks so cozy! Plus, you can download one of their free hours trackers to encourage the whole family to get outside throughout the year.
And of course, you’ll want to put your kids in our rain or mud boots to keep their feet warm and dry. T'is the season to stomp in puddles, make snowmen and get muddy! You can check out our full lineup here!
This set may also help get everyone outside for some snow play! Up your snowman game with this colorful snow kit. Or you can DIY this outdoor craft with a couple of water bottles and some food coloring!
And last but not least, because I think this may be my favorite… With a couple of light strings you can transform your backyard into a winter wonderland playground! The days are shorter this time of year, but if you light up your backyard swing set or treehouse you can create a whole new kind of magical play that lasts into the night!
