Thanks in advance!
Nail polish and body clitter (little containers of these sparkely things can be found at wal0martfor $.88)
Gel pens and black paper. Or just colors and a pad of regular paper
O couple of polly pocket dolls.
5-7 is such a great age because they are old enough to do stuff and young enough to still enjoy everything.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
They love getting those little cheap notepads with a cute picture on front
they spend all day writing notes to each other, playing mail etc.
fun and cheap
If dd gets one more Polly Pocket I will lose it. She has so many of them and they are hard to dress even for an adult!
Paperback books are a good inexpensive idea but hard to know what they may already have.
Art supplies are fun - glitter glue, fun scissors that cut a pattern or a book of art projects. My dd was in a Scholastic club for Hello Kitty art projects and that had great, easy, fun ideas and came with the supplies to do it. Wonder if they have those books in the regular book stores?
My dd loves nail polish but not all moms are happy to see that come in the door. Hair accessories are always popular with my dd - headbands, ponies, barrettes.
