Okay everyone, today we are going to talk about Fidget Spinners. If you don’t really know much about them you might want to take a few seconds and check them out on YouTube.
If you took my advice and checked them out then you definitely want one now! When looking for a fidget spinner, you want it to spin….FAST. But, fast isn’t always enough. To pick the perfect fidget spinner for yourself or your child, you need to decide on what material you would like it to be made of, what color you might like, and what shape you want to try. Every variation will yield a different result. The good thing is that most are cheap enough, if you don’t really like one, you don’t feel too bad buying another one.
If your 5- 12 year old has been on YouTube within the past few months, they have probably seen a DIY slime video. That is definitely the case at my house! They watch a million videos and then they BEG to make it at home.
Personally, I love the look on my kid’s faces when a box gets delivered and they find out it’s a gift for them! Most kids want as many toys as they can get right. As a parent, I don’t want to spoil my kids but I do like to buy them new things when I can and when the situation fits. So I am always looking for the best toys that I can get them on a budget because let’s face it, I still have bills to pay!
I’ve put together this list of the top 3 cheap toys for kids in a few different categories. Be sure to let me know which ones interest you!
Arts & Crafts
Cool Sand 3D Sandbox – Kinetic Sand Kit
I love everything about Kinetic Sand! Kinetic sand only sticks to itself which is great because you don’t have to worry about it getting all over your house. It’s also great because it’s educational. You can sneak in a little science lesson while letting your kids play!
Plush Craft Pillow Kit
These kits are adorable! There are a bunch of different kits that each feature a different animal or item. There’s a fish, a fox, a penguin, a whale, ice cream, stars, a ladybug, a peace sign and much more. Most of the kits range from $10 – $15 and they are well worth the price!
Crayola Washable Finger Paint
Finger paint!! Yay, let’s do it. The Crayola set of 3 comes with Blue, Green and Red 8 ounce washable finger paints. This is an easy and cheap midday activity for kids of all ages (adults too). Whip out some paper and you’re ready to go.
This costume comes in Small, Medium, and Large sizes. I love the fact that the chest area has the build in muscles! Kids love to play dress up so why not become a superhero for the day. Be super strong and super cute at the same time.
Since Super Man doesn’t have a mask or any head gear, you’ll have to become a hair stylist and slick back your child’s hair to complete the full look!
Batman Action Suit
I love this one because it includes the signature Batman mask and cape. It also features a belt with the bat symbol on it! This one comes in size Medium only with should fit a child 5-8 years old.
The jumpsuit itself is light weight which will definitely give kids the freedom to run around and save the world! The mask is molded so it will keep its shape even if there are flips and kicks needed to defeat villains.
Wonder Woman Costume
I’ve seen many versions of this costume. Some with pants, some with stars on the skirt and some with extra accessories. For the price, this one is just fine. Kids will love the fact that it comes with a set of armbands and a headdress.
The skirt is about knee length in the front and back but slightly higher on the sides. The set comes in a very forgiving size Small. There are even Wonder Woman wigs sold separately!
As Seen on YouTube and TV
I just ordered this from Amazon for $8.54. We’ve watched tons of YouTube videos featuring this stuff so I can’t wait to surprise my kids with it.
You fill your bathtub with water then you add in the packet of little beads. Well, I guess it’s more like a sand texture. Once you add that to your water, you can use your hands to turn it into slime!
This toy has been all over commercials and the internet. After the release of the Fidget Cube, people were looking for another way to keep their hands busy.
What started off as a way to treat anxiety has now taken over the kid world…. and YouTube.
