Our nephew's birthday is coming up in a few weeks. With him and his sister home more due to the pandemic, I am very conscious of not getting him a clutter-producing gift. I have thought about a Kiwi Crate, since he likes tinkering, but other moms, tell me: is the gift of a project for you and your child to do together just too much right now? Any other great suggestions for an almost six-year-old who is super active, loves hockey, using tools, and riding his 4-wheeler?

I will send books for Christmas, so am planning on something else for the birthday gift.
