It goes without saying that the littlest ones in my life are the most excited about the holidays. If your kids are anything like mine, it seems like their desires and preferences change on a minute-by-minute basis. As a result, when I am doing holiday shopping I look for things that I hope will challenge and grow with my kids. As preschoolers, they are all about art projects, dress up, pretend play, and outdoor fun. Here are a few things they have received in the past (and still love) and a few items I’m looking at this year. Hopefully, all of the toys on this list will stand the test of time.
