Picking the “Right” Gift

Santa Visits (19)_001

Our students happily open presents from Santa & Mrs. Claus.

With Christmas just around the corner, I’m thinking about gifts for my nieces’ children. Since they are still very young, I want to be sure to be careful in my choice, and that I select something safe and age-appropriate. It’s similar to purchasing a toy for a child with special needs. It’s essential to match their stages of development and emerging abilities, but still fun.

For those of you that may be walking the aisles of Toys ‘R Us like me, here is an excellent article that provides guidance on toys for children from infancy through kindergarten. It also provides lots of activities to go with the various toys.
