I'm a nanny for three kids and have been taking care of them for four years. I've gotten to the point that when Christmas and birthdays come around... I dread having to do the present thing because these kids are kids who have 'everything'.
They have so many toys. So many clothes. I never have a ton of money to take them to do an 'experience' gift, etc.
But obviously I want to be able to give them stuff.
They're 5, 7 and 9. Boys youngest, girl oldest. They're an athletic family. The youngest loves dinosaurs/animals, the middle loves video games/skateboards/legos, the girl is super sporty... she's a swimmer. But she's also super girly (but has tons of dress-up, play makeup, nail polish etc.)
They ALL love to do artsy stuff but the house is over flowing with craft sets.
If we're talking $30ish a piece -- share with me your brilliant ideas.
I don't want to give them gift cards. I don't want to encourage video games, ipad stuff. I try really hard to keep them away from 'screens'.
