I don't know if this should be in preteen or children......

My baby is turning ten and I need to figure out what I am going to get for her for her b-day. And it can't be like more than $50-60. She spends a lot of time outside. She's a little mother to all the other little kids. She likes to ride her bike around, and doesn't want a scooter. She also like animals but I've decided that just isn't a good idea and I'm not getting her one.

She loves arts and crafts and with the days getting shorter I thought maybe that was a good idea. So I started looking for a cute/smallish storage idea that I could fill with arts and crafts ideas for her but anything that would work is wayyy too much money (like my entire budget).

I am just at a complete loss. Can anyone help??

TIA

This is coming from a mom that is on a tight budget.

clothes (same as above)

itunes gift card (spent $10)

tempera cake paints (inexpensive) from Discount School supply online http://www.discountschoolsupply.com/...uct=23651&mlc=

knitting loom (easy to learn) purchased from Hobby Lobby

felting supplies (this was the most expensive since I bought the wool at the farmers market).

I'm not in to chemical nail polish but Klutz makes a fun set of nail polish that is not toxic and she LOVED playing with that stuff
