Educational Gift Ideas for Kids

My favorite types of gifts to give children are fun and educational gifts because a love of learning is a gift that keeps on giving. With the majority of children behind in school due to the pandemic, it is imperative that we give them gifts they can enjoy while getting them caught up. This list is aimed at elementary and preschool aged children, but please feel free to list any educational gifts ideas that you have for older children in the comments below.
