Green Holiday Gifts for Kids

Celebrating greener holidays can mean reducing the number of gifts you give, choosing instead to focus on relationships and the spiritual meaning attached to the holiday season. Still, many find great joy in sharing gifts with the children in their lives. Fortunately, there are many wonderful gift ideas guaranteed to bring a smile to a child’s face while supporting the giver’s commitment to a just and sustainable future at the same time. The following gift ideas are all from companies that are green, family-owned, or fair trade—or even all three!

(Live links to each of these toys are available underneath the slideshow. Use the pause and arrow buttons at the bottom of the slideshow to view at your own pace.)

    I’m viewing this on my phone, but even so there should be links to these products’ web pages, not just text. I kept trying to click on the pictures and the text thinking I would be sent to a product page, but to no avail.

    I was excited to see the Explorers game, but the website does not exist! Ah–looks like it’s a .net:

    Also, this slideshow format is really annoying–I wish it was just a page with photos and links you could click, instead of quickly trying to read the website name before it goes away.

      Larisa, there’s a pause button on the slideshow. If you hit that, you can scroll through the images at your own pace. The automatic slideshow is definitely too fast to read everything.

    Rosemary, I went in and added the links to the end. I hope that makes it easer. Larisa, we were just excited to try out a new fancy WordPress tool. I’ll keep your comments in mind if we do something like this again! And you accessed before I could check my new links–Naturally Playful is now updated.

    You really make it seem really eeasy along with your presentation however I to
    find this matter to be actually one thing that I believe I would by no mens understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am taking a look forward on your next submit, I’ll try
    to get the hold of it!
