Sometimes even Santa gets stumped for gift ideas. If you’re looking for gift inspiration for your little one, check out our 2019 Active for Life Holiday Gift Guide for a list of toys for babies, toddlers, kids, and tweens. Each toy was selected because it will encourage your kids to develop physical literacy through play.
If it’s stocking stuffers you’re after, we’ve also got a list of stocking-stuffer ideas aimed at inspiring your kids to get off their screens and enjoy good old-fashioned active free play.
The presents wrapped under the tree are just one small part of the holidays. The real joy of the season comes from spending time with your loved ones. Print out our Active Advent Calendar for daily activities to do with your family or class throughout the month of December. (We’ve even included some blanks so you can write in your own ideas.)
