Teacher Approved: The best educational holiday gift ideas for kids

As a mom and an elementary educator I am always looking for screen-free ideas to keep my kids and students learning and engaged while they are in the classroom or on a break from school. When parents ask for my advice to help support their child’s growth and development at home, I always suggest finding an activity, toy or game that will teach or reinforce skills while also having a good time. I love games that sneak in all types of skill building, it’s just like sneaking some healthy green vegetables into your spaghetti sauce and no one can tell the difference!
