Build, Play and Create – More Great Gift Ideas for Kids {Giveaway}

A Day in the Life Kids Reviews & Giveaways Things We Love Tried & Tested

Do your kids love to play, build or create like my kids?

My kids love using their hands. On any given day you can find my oldest trying to build something. And my little guy will pretty much put his hands in anything!

So when you start your shopping for the holidays, take games and toys into consideration for your kids who love rolling up their sleeves and getting to work!

Here are some that we love…

Airpuck Toronto Maple Leafs

Hockey related toy…need I say more! My kids are obsessed with all things hockey which is why this is such a great item any hockey loving kid.

The AirPuck hovers over your floor and floats easily over any smooth surface. But don’t worry moms and dads, it won’t damage your walls or floors because it has a foam outer layer that will protect anything the Air Puck touches. For the kids who love different teams? The air puck is NHL licensed in all the Canadian hockey teams!

Trust me when I say the air puck is a great toy to have for fun, indoor play. It will also light up and glow in the dark!

Available at ToyTown | $24.95

Small World Active Detective

For the kids who like to get in any kind of action, this game is for you!

Kids can team up to solve mysteries with the Active Detective kit. This game has everything a young investigator needs to role-play being a spy or a detective!

Includes binoculars, fingerprint identification kit, secret invisible ink pen and ultraviolet flashlight, plus eavesdropping device (battery included), stamp pad, plaster, and detective’s folder with pages for fingerprints, surveillance and crime scene notes.

How fun does that sound?!

Available at: Bergo Design, Distillery District, Toronto | $29.95

Hot Rod

My son loves to build things. That’s what Hot Rod is all about. Look at all those pieces!! 180 to be exact! I’ll be honest and tell you he isn’t nearly finished yet, but he will! End result? A free wheeling vehicle!

Crazy Aaron’s Think Putty









My 6 year old is obsessed with putty! He loves playing with it and making different shapes and balls, and even loves covering his whole hand with it!

The great thing about Aarons Think Putty, is that it never dries out and isn’t overly sticky. You can do so many different things with it like snap it, bounce it, stretch it and knead it.

And what I love about it, is that even I can use it as a stress ball! Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze!

Available at retailers across Canada including Indigo, Scholar’s Choice, Pharmasaves, and a huge range of local toy and gift shops.

Holographic mixed by me $29.95
Gold rush $19.95

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
