I don’t know that there’s really a “birthday party season” since, obviously, birthdays are year round, but they do seem to ramp up as the weather warms up and parents try to get invites sent home before summer vacation starts.
So, let’s talk birthday gifts! I created this guide in partnership with Sylvan Learning with a few things in mind. I wanted the gifts to be fun, educational with a STEM focus (science, technology, engineering, and math), and something that hopefully won’t end up taking up a bunch of space and ending up in a pile of junk in a few months. Having just gone through a great purge of STUFF of our own (so we could sell our house and move into an RV for a year of travel), I am really particular about toys and gifts now.
