When looking for Christmas gifts for children, I always like to add an educational aspect to them. Yeah, there are so many fun toys and gifts for children, but if they give an helping hand in teaching and helping children learn new things, then I'm all for it.
So today I am showing off what is on the market in my Educational Christmas Gifts for Children feature...
Discovery Kids Metal Detector | Trends UK | £19.99Featuring a sensitivity and volume control, the detector emits a beeping sound when close to metal, and the flashing indicator lights speed up and change colour. This product is a STEM product that is great for getting children out and about, exploring their environment.
The BFG Spelling Games | Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity | £7
A splendiferous range of fun letter games, from creating crosswords to quick-fire spelling races. All of the games are a great way for children in Key Stages 1 and 2 to develop their spelling. And you are giving to charity when you purchase this item.

Crazy Claw pitches concentration and persistence against out-and-out mayhem - a playroom-friendly twist on an old arcade favourite.
