This holiday, my mother-in-law sent the boys something truly amazing…
They’ve gotten many great presents over the years — books, games, a beloved ukulele — but this gift took us all by surprise, and we spent days playing with it as a family. I even told Alex that I would have loved to receive it for myself.
Reader, it was a magic kit.
The boys went wild! We learned how to make a coloring book turn from black-and-white pages to colored-in pages; how to break a pencil into thirds and then magically restore it; and how to make a straight magic wand appear curved. The list goes on. We practiced the tricks on each other, and then performed over Zoom for the grandparents, aunts and uncles!
What do the kids in your life love playing with these days? What gifts were a slamdunk for you?
