Do you have little builders in your house? Do they dream about fixing things for you? Wouldn’t it be great to get that little guy – or gal – some tools and props to be just like a real workman! Check out this BIG GIFT GUIDE filled with fun toys for the little builders in your life:
My nephew, Elijah, is a kindergartener who loves to build things. Much of the summer his family had workmen at their house installing new windows, siding and a roof. He thrived on watching them every day as they hammered, sawed and built.
One morning he met the men at the door wearing his pretend toolbelt, stocked with pretend tools, and announced “I’m going to be a builder just like you!” He was ready. Do you have little ones in your life just itching to build something? There are so many awesome toys and costumes to help your little tykes have glorious fun being builders, too.
