Your little one just accomplished a huge milestone! Preschool is where it all started, from exploring their creativity to learning their letters and numbers to making new friends; these past few years require celebration. That means these little ones deserve a special preschool graduation gift.
As a former preschool teacher and a mother of a recent preschool graduate as well, I rounded up some toys, books, and learning activities that will not only bring a smile to your big grad's face but will keep their brains active all summer long!
When I was a preschool teacher, a viral Pinterest pin was going around encouraging parents to buy this book and have their kid's teacher sign it—starting from their preschool teacher and ending with their high school teachers. Then the parents are supposed to give the signed book to their high school graduate. I signed many "Oh, the Places You'll Go" books that year, and it was the most touching gift I have ever seen a parent give to their child. Not only is it a beautiful keepsake, but it shows the child the impact they had on those they looked up to.
Your preschool graduate is moving on up and is going to need a backpack for this next milestone. Why not get them one that reflects their style, personality, and interests?
For the artistic, creative graduate, this art kit has everything they need to let their imagination go wild and bring projects to life!
This toy is not only entertaining and will keep your child active, but they will be learning about aerodynamics as they experiment with force and trajectory.
For the creative graduate, this jewelry kit makes it easy for your young grad to express themselves. It's also a great way to stay in touch with their preschool friends through the magic of friendship bracelets.
A fun and interactive toy to introduce kids to physics and engineering! This motion-controlled drone will be fun for the whole family.
This lamp is magic! There are so many settings, and it looks like the galaxy can fit in the palm of your hand. It makes for a great night light or to be used as a calm-down tool.
These planes come in a two-pack and fly so high! (Another great toy to learn more about aerodynamics.) You can adjust the wings differently to make the aircraft fly straight or do loops and tricks.
Legos are a great toy for many developmental reasons. From problem-solving to learning about step-by-step directions to exploring creativity, Legos are a great learning toy. The junior sets are the perfect level for your budding kindergartner!
Around this age, many children start to show an interest in money and a curiosity about how it can get them toys. This ATM Piggy Bank is a great way to teach them the basics of saving and investing!
