The best gifts for 5 year old girls

Once your child turns 5, there is much to consider when selecting toys as gifts. You may have noticed how much smarter they have become and how much they are engaging with those around them. Not all children are highly sociable at this age but it is important to encourage that side of them, especially during playtime. Consider all your options, maybe even allow your child to pick their own toys, you may be surprised!

Confidence

When choosing a toy, consider how your 5 year old girl is reacting to the world around her. It may be worth buying toys that suit their skills to aid her development and strengthen her confidence. Children may find pleasure in music, art or building for example. Figure out what your little girl is best at and feed her confidence through play.

Challenge

Although it is important to encourage strengths, it is equally important to challenge their weaknesses. If you see that your child is finding it difficult to communicate with others, try providing games that involve multiple participants. Board games, physical games or role playing games are all good ways to influence communication through play. There are so many different types of games in this category so choosing the right games for your little girl should not be difficult.

Safety

The best quality children’s toys will without doubt be checked and tried before going on sale. That said you must still always consider your child’s individual needs, because every child is different and buying toys may require a little more thought and consideration. The age of a child is crucial because if you choose a gift that is for older children, toxicity may be an issue. Small parts are a choking hazard so always ensure you buy the correct toy for the required age.

Social Skills

There are a variety of indoor and outdoor games, toys and activities available for girls aged 5. Selecting toys that encompass to participation of family and friends is a great way to develop your little girls social skills. Skills like this are invaluable and will come in useful as she gets older. It is also important, not to restrict your child to girl-only type toys. There are plenty of unisex or boys toys that your child may enjoy. Allowing your child to browse all available toys may assist her in finding her true calling in life.

Creativity

Many young girls enjoy being creative and what a fantastic way to learn through art. There are many affordable options for instruments available these days and why not try your young girl with a musical instrument. Age 5 is the perfect time to begin sewing those musical oats. Maybe your child prefers drawing, painting or modelling? The possibilities are endless when it comes to creative play. Also consider building, design and other kinds of creative play.

Sensory

Providing toys that expose your child to all types of different activities is very important. You should consider their senses (touch, smell and sound) and make sure you cover all options when purchasing. Feeding the senses will introduce an all new dynamic to their environment and may serve as a tool in keeping their attention.

Dexterity

You should provide your child with gifts such as building blocks, building sticks, arts/crafts and other such toys to develop and improve motor skills. It is crucial for a young child to use their hands and eyes during playtime, to better their movement and coordination. Encouraging this type of activity is one of the most vital things to think about.

Language

Your young girl will be able to hold good conversation with you at this point and you will want to encourage this as much as possible. You will see how smart she has become and how she is taking in a lot more from what she hears and sees. Provide toys that encourage communication. Select gifts that will challenge and develop your little girl. There are many toys that teach our children another language for example, now is the perfect time to introduce your little girl to the idea of speaking a different language.

Knowledge

Promoting your little girl’s interest for learning is of vital importance. Your child needs sustenance and not just physically. Providing your child with the sources she needs to investigate and explore is crucial. Toys can be a great way to make learning enjoyable. If you advocate this sort of good, fun learning environment, she will likely grow up to appreciate school.

Exercise

Exercise can be a game and made fun if you introduce your little girl to the right kind of games. A child will learn valuable life lessons during this age, lessons they will take on throughout their entire lives. Making a fun environment and combining play with exercise is the perfect way to keep your child healthy and fit.
