Stuffed animals are a great joy to most kids, and plush toys have been delighting children since the late 1800s. Whether you are planning a gift for the holidays, a child's birthday, or just as a surprise to say you care, stuffed animals are the perfect present. Here are some cute and fun ways to present this gift to a child.
Set Up a Stuffed-Animal Picnic
While children may enjoy endless pretend tea parties with their dolls, setting up a little picnic outside with the stuffed animals you plan to gift is likely to make any child smile. You can set up the stuffed animals on a gingham blanket and show them sitting around a picnic basket. In the basket itself, you may opt to have little treats that are scaled to fit the stuffed animals. Small crackers and peanut butter can be a simple and inexpensive option that kids are sure to love. Then call the child outside and see their face light up at this fun surprise.
Create a Hide-and-Seek Scenario
You may hide the stuffed animals in fairly easy-to-find places in a child-safe room. Present the child with a list of the stuffed animals that have "gone missing" and have the child enjoy finding the presents. This is a game of hide-and-seek that a child is sure to always remember. You may amp up the fun by presenting the child with a detective's kit for searching for the animals. This kit can come complete with a magnifying class and other tools for finding the stuffed animals.
Have Practical Fun
If you want to give the child more than one gift, you may choose to hide the "fun" gift of the stuffed animal in something that's more practical. For example, if the child needs a toy chest to keep all their stuff organized, you may put the teddy bear inside the chest. When the child opens up the practical gift, they are probably not going to be too excited at first, but all that will change when they set their eyes on the stuffed animals they are sure to love.
Finally, keep in mind that you should let your imagination guide the way. Set up a presentation that you think will most appeal to the child in your life. The gift of a stuffed animal can be one that will be treasured for a lifetime, so take your time to present it in just the right way.
