3 - 5 year old girl gift ideas
What do 3 - 5 year old girls love?
**All children are different - this is a generalisation based on A LOT of data, but the girl you're thinking about might be completely different! Whatever she likes, the one thing she WILL benefit from is time with someone who cares about them. You can't buy that here - but you can give it whenever you want, and it doesn't cost a thing!
Three year olds have just pushed past the toddler stage and are ready for the big world outside it. They're asking a million questions, and there are a lot of games and toys that can help them answer these questions (or better yet, encourage them to ask more). Good toys for this group of girls will encourage them to imagine and think creatively (problem-solving is a hugely important skill that you can help foster). Good play will improve their language and social skills, as well as their physical strength.
Four year olds are similar to the threes, their physical motor control starts developing a bit more at this age.
Five-year-olds have just started one of the most important and most challenging stages in their child (and adult) hood, classroom-based learning. You can help them with games and toys that add confidence, problem-solving and reasoning skills, as well as their physical motor control. This is such an important age, the right toys for five year olds can make a really big difference!
Dolls, Playdough, things that squelch, and things that sparkle are great gift ideas for 4 year old girls. They love playing shop and selling make believe icecreams. Kinetic sand, necklaces and hair ties are great ideas. Skipping ropes are a great way to burn off some energy. Frozen and Moana related things are always a hit!
