I have another gift guide for you — this time with gifts for kids who love construction! If your kid loves all things construction — flashy vehicles, mighty machines, and powerful tools, this is the guide for you!

My middle child, Andrew, is a BIG fan of construction machines. Trucks, tractors, diggers… if it has a motor and lots of power, he’s into it!
Does this sound familiar to any of you??
I’m sure many of you can relate, so I’ve put together a list of gifts for kids who love construction — including several that aren’t trucks! (Because you can only handle so many construction vehicles around the house, am I right??)
Take a peek through the list, and if you have any great ideas to add, share them in the comments below!
(By the way, earlier this week, I shared a gift guide for one of my oldest son’s greatest loves — the Wild Kratts. If you have a Wild Kratts fan at your house, be sure to check that one out. There are some fun things in there!)
