chess (super mario style)
[vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”7/12″][vc_column_text]Chess is a great way to develop many skills that will be of great demand when our kids become adults.

Not only will they develop their logical thinking skills, they will also have to think creatively, problem solve, take risks, and deal with failure.

This Super Mario version makes it even more fun to play.

Monopoly (Star Wars Style)

STEAM toys
[vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”7/12″][vc_column_text]Amazon actually has a great selection of STEAM related toys and gifts, from sets that help kids to understand the science of slime, to explosive experiments and robot building sets.

You can also sift through the many options by age and by type so you’d be hard pushed NOT to find something here for your kids.

We like the STEAM type gifts because they encourage kids to be hands-on. Doing and experimenting is the best way to learn and to keep that spark of curiosity alive, something our kids will need if they are going to thrive as adults.
