It’s a no-brainer that kids love toys as Christmas gifts.
But why not give kids toys that teach them a new skill, nurture their creativity or inpire their imaginations? That’s a gift that keeps on giving!
I know you’re super busy, so I wanted to gather a list of 67 Christmas gifts for your kids that are play-oriented, encourage hands-on learning and are just plain fun!
Here’s your gift guide for 67 fun gifts that encourage creativity and imagination!
3 Favorite Gifts for Creative, Hands on Play
Handstand Kitchen Deluxe Baking Set
Is your child an aspiring baker? My 9-year-old loves to bake beside me and can handle some of the adult-size kitchen tools now. My 4-year-old son, on the other hand, is just as eager to get his hands working in the kitchen, but he still has quite a bit of learning to do.
That’s why I love this Deluxe Baking Set from Handstand Kitchen that contains kid-sized tools and fun baking accessories! Kids can use special molds such as a fancy, oh-so-cute silicone cake mold and a silicone loaf pan to create wonderful baked goods.
The Deluxe Baking Set includes recipes cards for inspiration, and all the kitchen tools are brightly colored and engaging for kids. Who can resist the adorable, brightly-colored cookie cutters and flower-shaped spatula! So much fun! Learn more here!
Speaking of food… is there any other food more universally loved by kids than ice cream? My kiddos love to play pretend and so I flipped my lid when I saw this AH-dorable wooden Ice Cream Shop!
The Ice Cream Shop from Svan Wooden Toys contains 11 pieces including deliciously decorated scoops of ice cream, connectable cones, popsicles and an ice cream scoop. Plus, of course, there’s that super cute storefront that can be used either on the ground or on a table!
What I love best about this gift is that it’s convenient and portable. Kids can set up their ice cream stand wherever they’d like: in a bedroom or outside, and then move shop in a snap! And because the set is so portable, it doesn’t take up a ton of storage space like some large “pretend stores” or other role-playing toys. That’s especially helpful for us moms who lack a ton of toy storage space!
In addition, Svan’s Wooden Toys are constructed from all natural wood using non-toxic paint and BPA-free materials. Which means that it’s completely safe if an ice cream “cone” happens to end up in your 15-month-old’s mouth.

Isn’t it amazing how, even at the youngest ages, some kids have a natural instinct to nurture? This was my daughter. She’s always cuddled with her dolls at night, brushed their hair and even made fashion accessories for them.
Svan’s Doll Bunk Bed is the perfect gift for kids who love playing dolls or just pretend play with their stuffed animals! Equipped with two beds (which can be bunked or separated), two cozy patterned blankets, two pillows and a ladder, your child will love tucking his or her favorite friend in for a comfy night’s sleepover!
Young children learn so much about social skills through pretend play and interaction. You child can make every night a slumber party with Svan’s Doll Bunk Bed! And yes, American Girl Dolls (and other dolls that size) do fit in the bunks! Learn more here!

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
