We have been fans of Happy Heart Kid for a while now and they just keep coming out with great, fun and educational things for kids. These are especially great for kids who are just learning some social things like manners, for example. Elliott just turned 8 and he still loves them!
There are lots of craft activities they can do which will keep little hands busy for a while (you're welcome, moms!) Elliott's favorite is the Mind Your P's & Q's game. He loved being able to create the little people that you use on the game board. Check out all of their kits and games, they make great gifts too!
