With Fall officially underway, you’ll probably be doing a lot more of your family fun activities indoors than you were just a few months ago. Here are some of our current Autumn favorites.
Gumball Machine (Klutz)
There’s no question that building things from start to finish is great for kids’ confidence. And if you can sneak in a little (or a lot of) STEAM learning, it’s a double win. This kit comes with everything you and your child will need to build a working gumball machine (except the actual gumballs). The detailed instructions are thorough and helpful. However, assembling the machine definitely requires adult involvement, and the finished product isn’t as sturdy as we’ve come to expect from other Klutz toys. That said, it’s still a fun way to spend time doing something with your child. For ages 8 and up. Under $25. www.klutz.com
