Educational Presents for Children

Educational Presents

Not only is it difficult getting the right gift for a child these days, but it can also be daunting to find one that is educational, too. There are a variety of toys and gadgets that might do nothing in the way of teaching the little one new things. However, there are also items that can help him or her learn better in school or just find out more about the things that make up our wonderful world.

To make it slightly easier for parents to make up their minds about what they should select for their kids, we have put together a list of products that might make great educational presents. Check them out below.

How about a microscope?

If you’re thinking of teaching your kid the basics of biology, a microscope might make just the right type of gift. Of course, you will have to keep the age of the child in mind so as to avoid getting devices that are simply far too complex to handle by a very young individual.

Nevertheless, a note must be made in relation to the design of some microscopes. While compound alternatives can be hefty and hard to work with, some choices are very easy to use. These are called USB microscopes, but in most cases, you’ll notice that they are, in fact, magnifiers, not real optical devices the same caliber as a microscope.

The neat thing about USB models, though, is that the market’s overflowing with some affordable alternatives, so if you do decide to pick one of these in the beginning, at least you’ll know you haven’t spent a fortune. Besides, you can never know whether you’ll manage to convince the little one to actually use the microscope, right?

Telescopes and the like

Other optical instruments that might make great gifts range from telescopes and monoculars to spotting scopes and binoculars. While some telescopes are primarily designed for astronomy purposes, the rest of the devices that we have mentioned should mostly be used for terrestrial viewing.

Consider the usefulness of each of these options. It’s true that some telescopes can be hefty and as such, might not be too easy to take to a field nearby your home so as to watch the stars without any light pollution. So, they might not be winners when it comes to portability.

By contrast, monoculars and binos can be used in most situations. If you’re planning a trip to a safari with the rest of your friends and family, you should consider getting a kids’ binocular for this purpose exactly. You won’t be able to use the same pair of binoculars that you might own already, and that’s because kids’ eyes are close-set and let’s face it, binos for adults are way too heavy to be held conveniently.

Stimulate their creativity

An educational present doesn’t necessarily have to be categorized as scientific in order for it to be truly useful. Perhaps the kid you’re looking to surprise is into painting, creating handmade jewelry, or even repairing things around the house. There are kits for all of these activities, so don’t hesitate to consider one if you see that the child is particularly interested in one of these pastimes.
