cheap toys for young children

simple mom reminds us all that the newest, flashiest, and most expensive toys on the market are not necessarily the best.  in a recent post, she offered 11 cheap (and free!) toys for young children.  including:

  • egg cartons
  • chalk
  • empty food containers
  • crayons and paper

i found this post significantly timely as i just put away some of my son’s birthday presents that he hasn’t opened yet.  his birthday was in august.  even though he received a number of flashy toys with colorful (and expensive) packaging, he seems to be most content with a baseball bat and ball.  when will we parents ever learn?

    If we have a party for our kids we say no gifts please. She will get some from us and grandma. There is no need for a bunch of stuff from friends too.
