Want Need Wear Read #1

How to make Christmas shopping for your kiddos easy!

Something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read.


  1. Wear – The Smallest Tribe unisex summer shorts in sky. With a short leg length to let little legs roam free, elastic waist for ease of dressing and a bright, happy, bold summery print, these shorts are the perfect pair all season long.
  2. Need – Miffy Money Box. The former early childhood teacher in me loves money boxes for two reasons. One, they are the perfect way to start teaching financial responsibility from a young age, and two, when the earning of money is tied to chores or jobs it helps foster a sense of pride, develops self esteem and encourages your little one’s growing independence.
  3. Read – The Very Hungry Bum. Like the caterpillar. But not. Seriously funny for kiddos and grown ups alike.
  4. Want – Beehives. Perfect for all the little TLS (Tiny Little Stuff) lovers out there. These are amazing on so many levels. They’re great for helping to develop fine motor skills when kiddos use the tweezers to pick up the bees and plop them into their hive or back out again.  Developing strong fine motor skills is vital for kids to be able to build up the strength they need in their hands, as well as the dexterity and flexibility that is necessary for learning how to write. They can be used for colour matching, sorting and classifying, all vital early mathematics skills.

    That book sounds great, and even better you can buy it from the author/publisher (and I did), so she gets paid better too.

    I make most presents now or buy hand made or from small, independent shops (usually online)
