Christmas Gift Ideas 2019: 3 & 4 year olds

Currently, this is one of the stages we are at – the “not a baby I am a big boy” and totally indepent stage.  The good news is that I have survived this stage once, so I beleive I can do it again.  What I love about this age, outside of the sassiness and need to do EVERYTHING ON THEIR OWN, is their imagination.  It is crazy to me how at this age little kids imaginations just explode.  They love pretend play, mimicing what they see others do, and creating things in their own little world.
