Whether it’s for a Birthday, Christmas or special occasion we’ve made finding the perfect gift for your mini adventurer easy with this inspirational list of kid’s gift ideas.
We’ve also included a few discount codes where we can too – so get scrolling.
Who doesn’t love finding Nemo?
Snorkelling provides an excellent window into the underwater world for all ages, and is a great introductory water activity for children. Our kids just love snorkelling. We started with just the mask and snorkel and worked our way up to using the flippers – once they get it, there’s no stopping them!
For budding birdwatchers and junior secret agents!
This is an awesome introductory set of lightweight and robust binoculars with a canvas carry case that you can wear on your belt. Use code: Blondies for 10% off.
Kids love receiving mail and this is the gift that keeps on giving!
National Geographic Kids Magazine is packed with information, from wildlife to space, geography to the environment, plus has incredible stories, dazzling images and fun puzzles. Our mini blondies get this each year as a joint gift from their grandparents and they LOVE it.
Embrace your inner Robin Hood
This is a toy your children will come back to day after day. The bow is made from ash hardwood and is perfectly made for little hands. The arrows have felt ball tips to soften impact (such a great idea!). We have the larger set (not available at the moment) and our kids just love it. I also purchased the quiver and extra arrows too.
Who doesn’t love building sandcastles!
This awesome sand pal kit makes the ultimate sandcastles. With little release buttons the sand can be placed easily onto your creation – keeping the kiddies, and you, busy for hours!! Use code: Blondies for 10% off.
What’s the time Mr Wolf?
There are loads of these wearable gadgets on the market at the moment. We haven’t used any but from our research they look pretty specky!
They can teach your kids to tell the time and have cool features like a camera, voice recorder, games, a torch and even a music player!
Depending on how fancy you go, you can also track your kids via GPS or call them like a telephone! How snazzy is that!
Breaker Breaker – do you have a copy? Over.
Can you remember how much fun it was to play radios when you were a kid? These are a great way to get the kids out and about exploring. We have a set and use them all the time. I often send Rob out with the kids for an explore or a fish and when dinner is ready I contact them on the radio. Easy!
Kids absolutely love slacklines – they incorporate so many of the things kids find fun: balance, falling, bouncing and the physical challenge.
What is a slackline you may be asking… well, a slackline is a two-inch-wide nylon webbing strip with a ratchet tensioning system. Most slacklines attach easily to trees and are the perfect way for kids of all ages to hone balancing skills while building core strength and confidence. A great activity for the backyard, the park or your campsite. This slackline can be set up in minutes with no knots.
Teaching your kids life skills!
Here’s one for the older kids. Spark their enthusiasm for bushcraft by teaching them how to start a fire with no lighter or matches. There’s a few options for ferro rods or flints available. While your at it you could also get them a little Canvas Carry Case to keep it in. Use code: ‘ Blondies ‘ for 5% off canvas case.
Unplug and enjoy battery-free fun whilst learning valuable skills.
This addictive game of strategy is very easy to learn and has origins dating back to the eighteenth century. Use strategy and skill to switch all pegs to your colour. Today the game is hugely popular in Japan where national championships are played. Use strategy and skill to switch all pegs to your colour. Crafted with care from eco-friendly hardwood designed to stand the test of time. Great travel size.
Catch all the critters, crabs and fish you can.
Our kids love these simple little clear discovery buckets. They spend hours collecting all kinds of critters in them. Ours have lasted for ages and for only $10 they are a must-have for every outdoor adventure kid.
Is there anything better than seeing your kids catch their own fish!
These little Ugly Stick rods have lasted so well for our mini Blondies. They have caught some awesome fish on our adventures and they are a great size for the kids to use (as well as us to keep in the car all the time). Available in a few colours they are sure to be a hit.
Sun safe and stylish!
Keep your little anglers cool and sun safe with a UPF50+ sun protection shirt. There are loads of fun designs around. We like to buy our shirts a little larger in size so the kids grow into them.
Everyone needs their own camp chair, even the kids!
Great for camping and sports days or at home in the backyard. There are lots of fun camp chair designs you can choose from.
The world is a big place, it’s even bigger when you’re young and small so teach your mini adventurers some orienteering skills!
Learning how to read a compass is a great skill to have and will help your child feel more confident outdoors.
Light up their days with a head torch
Kids just love the responsibility of having their own head torch. Make sure to get one with easy buttons and not too bulky for their head.
Something they will have for years to come.
I used to love having my very own tackle box. I’d spend hours sorting out my kit and taking it along with dad for a fishing adventure. You can buy your own box and fill it up with some goodies or purchase a ready made kit.
Want to do something a bit different? You can adopt a Koala! Your contribution will help with specialised treatments, tests and medications. It also goes toward the costs of the Rescue Ambulance and costs associated with gathering gum leaves. You can browse through a directory of Koalas in need and pick one to adopt.
