9 Year Old Birthday Gifts for My Boy and Girl Twins

Follow my blog with BloglovinNext week, Josh and Madison (my twins) are turning nine years old. I thought I'd share our plans and the gifts they will open on their big day, June 13th!

First, we're going to Great Wolf Lodge (an indoor water park with MagiQuest) to celebrate! I got this unbelievable deal for a one night stay in the Kid Cabin Suite. I had signed up for their email specials and last month they sent me an email mentioning a 24 hour promotion (maybe it was a 48 hour promotion). All I know is I jumped on it immediately! I can't wait to see the faces on the birthday boy and girl, when they enter the room and find a built in log cabin with bunk beds, a cozy cot and their own television. My 20 month year old is going to be bumming that she still has to sleep in a pak n play. Shsh...It's a secret!

As for gifts. This year I had an easier time buying Madison gifts than Josh. Below are a few of the gifts that hopefully will keep them busy and not bored this summer.

This is one of my favorite offers going on with LEGO right now. I'm a huge superhero fan and love LEGO's. In fact, I mentioned to my kids that I'd like to have one of the Monster LEGO building sets for my birthday coming up this summer.  You have to check out this deal and other's that LEGO is offering!

Okay, I helped my mom research both of the below products and found they were the best deal for the best rating for the best price; and they look to be the most durable for kids. We hope!

  1. My boys are obsessed with legos! I find that the older kids get the harder it is to buy things. By the time they are teens I just buy giftcards since then they can pick out something for themselves :)

  2. Hi Ann, funny that you mentioned gift cards. I've actually been toying with that idea for my twin son.

  3. Stopping by from the Mom's Monday Mingle Blog Hop. I'm a twin mommy too (except I have 2 sets). I hope the twins have a great birthday and enjoy all their gifts!

  4. Hi Crystal! Two sets of twins, how fun! I'm now following you too, and can't wait to share stories!
