A 25 cent Birthday

You are looking at the entirety of our birthday presents to M for her 4th birthday this year.  There was a part of me that felt like a bad parent for only spending a quarter in the clearance aisle, but then seeing the enjoyment she derived from bopping those yo-yo globe balloons (which she had never seen before) made it feel like the right choice.

Sometimes simple pleasures are best- and more easily enjoyed when they aren't crowded.

Have you ever opted for a simple gift to a child and then been glad you did? What did you give?

Looks like the perfect gift for a 4yo! 

We have had very nice all-handmade Christmases =)

My daughter just turned one, and I gave her a jack-in-the-box. That's it.
