Day 2: Healthy Holiday Gift Guide with Seedling Toys

Day 2 of our 12 Day Healthy Holiday Gift Guide focuses on the kiddos in our lives.  If you’re like us the idea of yet another digital device, plastic junk that kids get sick of in a few minutes, or gifts that encourage zoning out rather than tapping their creative sides, sounds like another dreaded trip to Toys R Us.  Instead give them something that makes them feel like a super hero, encourages outside adventures and creativity with our gift ideas below.

Seedling’s mission – “we supply the materials & let your kids supply the big ideas”.
