Christmas Wish List for Child and Teen
When I asked my kids what they wanted for Christmas this year, they seemingly had no idea what to ask for other than the list probably every child/teen have. Why is that?! Once I started showing them some ideas “outside the box”, their list started evolving! So to answer my own question, kids often want what other kids have because they have heard them talk about it at school. If you want a genuine Christmas list, let them scroll through this post to see some hot toys that they may not have considered. My kids have tested out these products and give an A++ and agree that other children need to see them and add them to their Christmas wish lists! Let me tell you about these great gift ideas!
Circuit Scribe- Drone Builder Kit
Circuit Scribe’s story began on November 20, 2013, when they launched a Kickstarter campaign for their Conductive Ink Pen. By the time the campaign ended on January 1, 2014, it was funded by 12,277 backers at $674,425, which was $589,425 above their goal of $85,000. The company creates products that are designed for budding artists, developers, inventors, makers, and scientists.
The Drone Builder Kit allows kids and teens to build their own functional drone and then they can fly the drone using the free app for Android and Apple devices. Shhh… my son doesn’t know about this one. It is now wrapped and under the tree for him after his daddy and I took it out and played with it for a little while! It is really neat! The drone takes about 15 minutes to build, using the kit, which features step-by-step instructions, conductive ink pen, drone control hub with an onboard camera, cardboard and plastic arms, battery, battery charger, eight propellers, and four motors.

The little girl that we have been fostering and I read this together several times now. She literally laughs everytime an elephant shows up on the page!
