The 12 Ages of Christmas: 8-Year-Olds

Instead of the 12 days of Christmas, we're celebrating the ages and the toys that go along with them. Keep an eye out for your age group as we tick along throughout the season!

On the eighth day of Christmas, yours truly gave to thee... a Sparkle It Gem Decorator ($20) and a Nerf Dart Tag package ($40). If mama has an aspiring Christian Siriano in her home, Sparkle It Gem Decorator is sure to be a hit. Lifetime may not have the rights to your youngsters but that doesn't mean they can't whip up a glittery design! Tots can decorate and add flair to their heart's content. For those that don't care much for fashion, the Nerf treatment may be in order. The BB gun may have been the hot toy decades ago, but the concept is still alive and well — just a lot safer! Instead of skin breaking or eye popping pellets, young rascals can use the plastic darts to aim, shoot and fire at their partner in crime. Armed in protective glasses and target adorned vests, players can keep score during their ambush. Take cover mom!

Check out what we suggest for the other ages of Christmas!
