Present Ideas For Boys Ages 4-7

I wanted to put present ideas togeather mainly so I can have ideas for my youngest son. After searching I found some good things I think he would like. He may even get one for his birthday coming up ūüėČ I hate shopping for birthdays and Christmas.¬†It’s always the dreaded what do I get them that they would like. I think more recently I have found ordering online works so much better. In our busy life with work and school, it’s hard to make it to the store to buy a present most of the time.

This time of year too with the snow I don’t want to go anywhere. It’s like let me live in my dungeon¬†and cuddle in my blanket. I guess that’s¬†why Bear is in my website name. I feel so close to wanting to hibernate this time of the year and I can see why they do.

  1. Pokemon¬†ball shooter- My 4-year-old would love this. I am thinking he will want this for his birthday this year! ¬†He also loves these little Pokeball’s¬†that have guys in it. Lots of creative play is done with them ūüôā Seeing all the Pokemon take me back to when I was younger and my brothers were obsessed¬†with it. I think I was just into beauty and the beast more than anything ūüôā

    

 

2. With the batman movie coming out soon they will all want lego batmans and anything to do with batman. He is the coolest lego guy right! I may even do some post in the future on how to do your own batman dress up stuff so look out for that ūüôā

3.Nerf Guns and tons of extra bullets- My kids LOVE Nerf guns! I think in the last few weeks I have picked up more bullets than ever. To hear the laughter and an occasional shot to my body from one is fun!.

4.Basketball Laundry bag-Here is a present even mom would love! I think maybe clothes would be pick up and made a game with it. This one is one of the better ones I have seen.

 

5.Paper Airplanes- I seriously didn’t¬†think a paper airplane would keep my child entertained for very long. I think most days when we make one he will play for a few hours flying it around the house. I think we have heard more giggles from a paper airplane than any other toy we own.

6.Smartwatch- We bought my son this for Christmas. He loves the little games on it and taking pictures etc

7.Race car track- What boy doesn’t like cars. This one even does flips.

8.We do a lot of camping during the summer on the colder nights my boys would love these plus I could maybe find them in the dark ūüôā

9. A wiggle car- We always see neighbor kids and our kids rolling down the sidewalk on them having a blast. This one  I feel like is a must buy if you have a sidewalk or an area they can ride its perfect. Plus on a smooth area it can hold a lot of weight so mom and dad can have a go too!

10. Soccer goals-This is the age where they start getting into sports. I think their favorite sport so far is soccer, for my kids at least

DIY: Easy Blanket Scarf

I really wanted a nice soft big blanket scarf and had seen nicer blanket scarfs run from $45 plus ouch! a little out of my budget. For those that can afford it the cute colored plaid is always gone first:( I decided it shouldn’t¬†be too hard to create my own.¬†So I went to Jo-Ann’s bought fabric and here is the result!

Items Needed

  • 2 1/2 Yards of cute plaid fabric¬†(they are currently out of this style online I’ve attached a link for another cute one same brand) the fabric is call perfectly plaid Fabric-Acrylic Gray Red Blue Black¬†Plaid blanket scarf fabric
  • Thread to match. With plaid you can choose different¬†colors of thread. This one I could have done blue, red, gray, yellow or black. I chose red where there was more red and it popped more.
  • Something to help fray the edges I used a safety¬†pin. I think the safety pin worked well with this fabric to loosen the thread.frayed plaid blanket scarf

Steps

Step 1

So the first thing is to make sure it doesn’t fray¬†past a few inches or what you prefer. ¬†I sewed in 1 inch from the edge it might look cute frayed 1.5-2 inches in too. ¬†You don’t have to sew it but it will continue to fray¬†if you don’t sew it.

I sewed a straight line you could do it zigzagged if you want too. 

Step 2

Now you will want to start fraying the edges. This can take a little bit of time to do but looks so nice when you are done. It took me two hours to fray it. If you can get a good string it can go fast. The safety pin helped me get the pieces out that were more stuck ūüôā

Step 3

Wear it!

Now you are done! Easy and it looks nice too!
