Gift Ideas for Kids at $10 Budget

Gift Ideas for $10 budget

Majority of gift shoppers these days will put the price of the item as top consideration in buying. But tight budget doesn’t necessarily mean giving worthless gifts. I hope the gift ideas below will be of help to you in finding gift items that will give value to your money.

Scrabble Slam Cards

Teach children to think fast and widen their vocabulary.  Scrabble Slam is a high-speed four letter word game where you race against each other to change the existing word and get rid of your cards.  This is a not just a good gift idea because it is affordable, it is educational and encourages bonding with family and friends as well.

Electronic Hyperslide

This toy is quite new to me but reading through the product description and the customer reviews, I got convinced that this is worth recommending in this hub.  This futuristic tabletop game will keep your kid’s senses working, will enhance abstract thinking and guaranteed to bring excitement even to adults.  The big discount and positive customer reviews tell that buying this electronic hyperslide is a good deal.

Product description and game objective is as follows.  The Hyper Slide from Hasbro packs three fast-paced electronic table-top games into one compact unit. While the objects of the games are simple, playing them can be a fun challenge. The first game, "FastPass," is all about speed. The game commands a color and you've got to pass it through the goal quickly before the buzzer blasts. With "Add One," you've got to remember the order of colors. You start with a color and add one to the sequence each time you complete a round. "Code Buster" gives you 90 seconds to decipher the secret series of colors.  Recommended for kids 8 years old and above.

Learning Resources Money Bags: A Coin Value Game

This is a fun way to teach children the value of money and some examples of how you earn them.  Of course being a board game, an element of luck is added. The object of this colorful and compact board game as explained by Lauren Bernard is to earn money while winding along a cartoon path. Money is earned by landing on a square labeled with a practical chore, such as setting the table (31 cents), or an entrepreneurial endeavor, such as a lemonade stand (15 cents). In order to collect money, the spinner is used to determine which coins can or cannot be taken from the bank. If the spinner lands on "no nickels" then you collect your change with any coins except for nickels. There's an additional incentive to use critical thinking and coin combining skills. Extra money can be earned if you land on a "Bank Exchange" space and exchange your coins (for example, two nickels for a dime). As you may have suspected, the player with the most money at the end wins.

Melissa & Doug Friendship Stamp Set

One of my daughter’s well-appreciated gifts is a friendship stamp set with colored pens. Being so creative and thoughtful, she uses these stamps to ornament her letters to her friends, teachers and relatives. She is fond of giving ‘love’ notes to people whom she likes. Melissa & Doug Friendship Stamp Set is a blessing for parents of the overzealous stamper ages 4 years and above. The set includes friendship-themed images (butterfly, rainbow, teddy bear, various hearts and flowers, and a bouquet of balloons), five colored pencils for sketching, scribbling, or coloring in the details, and two large pads of washable ink.

Digital Blue Disney Mix Clip - Hannah Montana Soundtrack

For fans of Miley Cirus and for music lovers in general, Digital Blue Disney Mix Clip - Hannah Montana Soundtrack featuring songs "The Best of Both Worlds" and "The Other Side of Me" would be a cool treat.  A full CD of music packed into a tiny memory card which can be directly inserted in an MP3 player.  All they need to do is hit play and groove to their favorite songs.

Classic Starts: The Call of the Wild (Classic Starts Series) (Hardcover)

Classic story books are for keeps.  Encourage children to read especially stories promoting good morals like ‘The Call of the Wild’.  Growing children will learn a lot from the adventures and misadventures of Buck as he was brought to the harsh and bitter Yukon to become a sled dog.  My school kids love this book.
