I especially love gifts for children that have an educational value to them. BrightMinds, offer the most fun and educational toys for children of all ages, and they are pioneers when it comes to development. They believe that learning can be fun and know that sometimes all it takes is the right toy and a little imagination. I love this ethos.
Do your children love to read stories or be read stories by you or other family members? Do they enjoy being transported into magical and exciting worlds?

Sports in school curriculum is a rather contentious issue. Many people think that it only steals the valuable time that could be devoted to more important subjects. Others argue that only children with special talent and love for sports should indulge in the corresponding activities while others do not need it. However, regular physical activity has long been proven to offer loads of benefits both physical as well as mental. And for school children, it is especially important.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is distressing and concerning, and it is understandable that children and young people may have questions or be seeking reassurance. So many of us adults have our own questions and anxieties, so of course many children and young people will have too.
