Cardboard blocks are great, says Dr. Cornett, since a kid can build forts, walls, and towns with them. Sounding like a parent, Dr. Cornett notes that you want to look consider, “durability and affordability.” We like Melissa & Doug’s Jumbo Extra-Thick Cardboard Building Blocks. This set of 30 blocks, from toy whisperers Melissa & Doug, are, well, extra-thick and come in three sizes.
Laser tag is great because you don’t have to worry about ammo, breaking anything, or somebody getting hurt. You can run around outside or even inside on Christmas day. It’s definitely more fun with more people. With a range of up to 300 feet, the blasters feature cool lights, sounds, and even immersive sensations to make you feel the action. Let the fun and games begin!
