Your child is at the age where you can introduce more complex creative tools. You can start to treat your child to good quality paints, pencils or crayons.

It’s important to observe your child and learn about their personality so that you can give them what they need to develop. If your child only wants to play video games, encourage them outside with games that involve other participants. Playing video games isn’t terrible, but make sure they are communicating with other children (especially if they are playing online). If you notice that your child is very good at something, encourage and buy gifts that promote their talents. Your child may have a talent that you haven’t spotted yet so don’t be afraid to introduce something new.
It’s easy to forget about challenging your child, especially when they get into a routine and begin to be more independent. Nethertheless, it is so important to monitor your child’s development and introduce play that betters all aspects of their physical capabilities. Make sure you encourage play that involves building, creating and constructing to increase your child’s coordination and dexterity. There are so many options when it comes to gift buying. Variety is the best policy when considering this sort of gift.

There are so many games that use words, general knowledge and world information to create fun games to play with friends or family.
Your child would have been going to school for a little while now and maybe went to preschool or kindergarten.
