A Homeschooler’s $50 And Under Holiday Gift Guide
Delta Character Chairs
If you’re raising avid readers, then great books and a cozy corner is a must! If your child doesn’t get excited about diving into a book, add their favorite characters to the mix. Delta offers both club and upholstered chairs with characters that kiddos love and sized perfectly for children ages 1-5 years old. Their club chairs ($29.99 at Target.com) are available in Cars, Frozen, Minnie Mouse and Ninja Turtles. The upholstered chairs, like the one pictured above, (currently $47.99 at Target.com) are available in Frozen and Paw Patrol. You can grab yours at Target.com. If you’re looking for the Paw Patrol style you’ll have to order online and choose store pickup at your local Target store.
I received the Delta Chair as part of the Savvy Sassy Moms Product Scouts program.

Melissa & Doug Tabletop Puppet Theater
Turning cardboard boxes into cars, boats, and puppet theaters for puppet shows excites my daughters more than a lot of things. Like most children, they love using their imaginations AND putting on shows. If you’re kiddo does too, Melissa & Doug have the perfect tabletop theater ($49.99 on Melissa & Doug) to allow your kids’ imaginations run wild.

After long days of learning, kids can wind down by playing their Nintendo 3DS. Animal lovers will love the Petz Beach by UBISOFT ($11.46 on Amazon.com) where they can explore sandy beaches while learning about a couple dozen breeds of dogs, several breeds of cats, plants and insects.
