Interactive Wish List
Store ads or magazines, scissors, tape or glue, paper, large envelope.
A few months away from your child's birthday or a special holiday like Christmas, let them start looking at the toy ads you receive in the mail. Have them cut out the pictures of the items they like. I keep them all in an envelope until a few weeks away from the big event. Then we'll take them all out and paste or tape them to a piece of paper. They will likely have tons of photos, so they need to decide which ones they really like. They can only keep those that will fit on the paper (paper size is up to you). We end up with a present collage that is fun to show grandparents and other gift-givers.
