My husband and I have an annual tradition of wrapping our kids’ presents on Christmas Eve. Once we (finally) get them tucked in bed, we settle down by the fire in front of the Christmas tree and dig into the gifts we stashed in various places throughout the year.
While we enjoy our tradition and the time spent together, we seem to forget that this tradition was born out of having just moved and the need to rush through present wrapping so that we’d be done by 3 am the night before Christmas. (But we don’t let little details like this bring us down.) So, as the night wears on, we inevitably get a little creative with our wrapping- either dumping a few unrelated items in one gift bag so they can try to figure out how they go together (this was unintentional, we swear) OR putting some of the items out with just a big bow.
This year, we’re planning ahead with some of our gift-wrapping ideas for once. One of the gifts we know our kids are just going to love is the K’NEX 521 Amazing Value Tub Building Set. While we are a technology-loving family, we also love gifts that encourage our kids imaginations. Loaded with 521 parts for lots of building fun, this set allows them to do just that. There’s so much to create- and, for convenience sake, parts and built models can be stored in the convenient storage tub.
The detail that will help us with our Christmas wrapping this year, however, is that this K’NEX Value Tub Building Set includes instructions/ideas for 35 unique models, such as dragsters, Ferris wheels, dinosaurs, creatures and more- check out the K’NEX Pinterest Boards for more ideas! One of the instructions is for a plane, which is one of my oldest’s favorite things. So, I’m going to have my husband- Mr. Aerospace- engineer up a plane to put on top of the tub.
Ahh, I just love creative presents- especially when I can put my husband to work 🙂
