Last christmas I gave our nieces and nephews each a disposable camera and a little photo album. It was a great hit AND an idea from this site.

So I'm looking for another great gift idea. These kids are toyed out, and I've already done magazine subscriptions (which didn't go over quite so well?). But I like gifts like the above.

Any ideas? The kids are 4-7 in age.

Do you sew at all? I've made little sample quilt kits for children that age, with pre-cut pieces in their favorite colors and simple directions.

Another idea is a pot, dirt and some herb seeds. My children have enjoyed measuring the plants' growth, plus they enjoy the herbs.
