For those of you new to this blog, I am devoting Fridays during the holiday season to recommending “Gifts for the Gifted”. You can see the two posts that I have done so far here and here. You can also visit my Pinterest board on Games for Gifted Students. A lot of these are not just for gifted students, but would be appreciated by many children – and adults.
I have Wedgits in my classroom, and my students love them. They enjoy meeting the design challenges on the cards, but they also delight in creating their own structures. The pieces are practically indestructible, and the design combinations are endless. Wedgits are the type of toys that meet the needs of kids who love to precisely recreate masterpieces while they also meet the needs of kids who want to make their own unique mark on the world.
Wedgits are available in many different bundles. You can get a “Starter Set”, an “Explorer Pack” (oh wow! I totally need this for my classroom!), “Mini-Wedgits”, Pink or Purple Wedgits, even Translucent Wedgits – and more. Go shop for the Wedgits set that fits your gift-receiver’s personality, or your own!
