6 - 8 year old girl gift ideas
Here's what 6 - 8 year old girls think is cool this year.
**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 they will benefit from is time with someone that cares about her. You can't buy that here - but you can give it whenever you want, and it doesn't cost a thing!
Dolls, arts and crafts stuff like glitter, are popular gift ideas for 6 year old girls. Writing and drawing goodies (pens, pencils, notebooks, diaries). Anything Smiggle is a very popular gift for 7 year old girls!
Multiple motor skills are important, doing more than one thing at once will help develop those. Give her the opportunity to skip, run and jump. Skipping ropes are a simple idea that goes a long way.
8 year olds can learn 20 new words per day through reading, so have a think about good books (we'll list some here once we've done some more research).
Dress ups are still really popular - at this age she's starting to experience and see more ideas she can incorporate into a make-believe world, she might be Superman, Superwoman, an archeologist, or a bus driver at lunchtime.
Friendships are important, so there can be an increased desire to have and do things that others around her are doing.
As stereotypical as it sounds, she still probably loves all things purple and pink.
