    Four of our Favourite Screen Free Gift Ideas

    A screen free Christmas, or at least the holidays with less screen time, is what we secretly hope for.

    And the great news is, by giving our children eco-friendly gifts that promote creativity and exploration, not only can we help them grow, but we can help the planet too.

    Four of our Favourite Screen Free Gift Ideas

    Koji Crochet Toys

    These little animals are perfect as stocking stuffers or in a bigger present as a set.

    Each Koji toy is handmade by disadvantaged women in Vietnam. The animals are made in the Japanese Amigurumi style, so they’re completely crocheted with no small parts that are a risk to little ones.

    A great toy to give to promote play and creativity for a screen free Christmas.

    EverEarth Toys

    All EverEarth’s toys are incredibly sustainable.

    Endorsed by the FSC, their wooden toys are made from sustainably-managed forests. They use recyclable packaging, solar power, and are painted with suck-proof, water-based dyes.

    Each toy is also aimed at developing your child’s learning and cognition, making them a great educational alternative screen free gift idea.

    For instance, our Stacking Duck toy (pictured above) aims to focus attention, build hand-eye coordination, develop shape recognition and problem solving. Plus a tactile, 3D object allows for more exploration, benefiting your child’s development.

    Sunprint Kits

    Biome has stocked Sunprint Kits for a number of years now, and we are now stocking a super size and the standard size.

    Sunprints are a great way for your child to explore nature and exercise their creativity.

    The special paper reacts to light, so your child can gather flowers, leaves, or objects from the house, overlay them on the paper, and place it in the sun. The objects will leave a pattern on the paper, which is set when the paper is rinsed in water.

    A fun family craft activity such as this one is a great screen free gift idea, and boredom buster these holidays!

    Gingerbread House Kit

    The tradition of putting together the gingerbread house as a family is a perfect (and delicious) distraction from the screen. Plus, our kits from Gingerbread Folk are sustainable and vegan!

    Made in the Blue Mountains by a small, environmentally-conscious business, these kits are made from all natural ingredients and are nut, palm-oil, and preservative free.
