Third Birthday Wishes

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

In a couple of weeks, we will be celebrating C's THIRD birthday. I, for one, am in COMPLETE denial that he could possibly be THREE already, but am so excited to be working out the details for his party! C is a complete sports fanatic, and after tossing a couple of other ideas to him for what kind of party he might like to have, it was firmly established that sports would be the only route acceptable to our soon-to-be three year old sports fan. In case you're wondering what a three year old boy might like, here are a few ideas!

Third Birthday Wishlist

Golf Clubs // C spotted these clubs for ages 3-5 on a trip to our local sporting goods store last week, and was all about them. T recently got new clubs and has been excited to hit the driving range, and C has taken note. Clubs for C would be a great father-son bonding activity that T & C could enjoy together for years to come.

Train Set // C has had the opportunity to play with this train set on some playdates this winter, and has been absolutely enthralled, making a direct bee-line to the trains. The little cars move on their own, and there are also additional tracks you can add to make this an even bigger set. Worth hours of entertainment for sure!

Strider Bike // As a family who loves biking, we'd love to get C started early with learning how to balance and ride a bike. These Strider balance bikes have super reviews, and after speaking with the local bike shop and having C test one out (he loved it and refused to leave the store), are definitely something that would be a great learning tool for future biking adventures (read more about them here). The biking experts maintain that teaching kids to balance on this bike makes for a super easy transition to actual biking, many times not even requiring training wheels. As C tends to be very VERY cautious, T & I are of the opinion that this may be the perfect route to go so that we never have to deal with training wheels! Fingers are crossed!

Tickets // This is a pretty general item on C's wishlist this year, and could mean anything from tickets to a live performance at Treasure Village or Bantam Boji to tickets to the Zoo or a major league baseball game. C loves to get out and DO things, and would no doubt LOVE any kind of adventure we could come up with!

Board Game // One of C's very favorite books is Cars and Trucks and Things that Go. He'd have so much fun with this accompanying board game and the 'find it' theme, and it'd be a great activity we could play together as a family for game night. 

Scooter // Cousin J received a scooter for his third birthday a couple of months back, and for C, it was love at first sight. He'd love to have this scooter so that when they are together this summer they can both scoot around and learn all the tricks!

Floor Puzzle & Subscription Box // C has been super interested in geography lately (probably in part to our recent travels and discussions about where other family members have been traveling). Combine this with his love of floor puzzles, and we have a perfect gift idea. I've heard awesome things about the Little Passports subscription box for toddlers, and think he'd have so much fun learning about different countries and customs. Such a fun way to introduce him to the world outside of our own town! There are also some other great subscription box ideas for young kiddos here.

Books // We do a LOT of reading at our house, and C can often be found curled up in his chair or on the floor with a good book. Now that he's a little older (and has most of his books memorized), it'd be fun to add a few 'big kid'...a.k.a. hardcover books with PAPER our collection. These (here, here, here) have been a few of our favorites from the library, and I know he'd love reading them over...and over...and over.

Football Helmet // C's love of the Iowa Hawkeyes runs deep, and he would absolutely LOVE to have his very own helmet. I spotted this complete uniform, and know it would become his most beloved outfit for gameday!
