Hi, 

I plan to make a birthday present for a six year old girl, friend of DD. It is a bit difficult, since she does not have that much "natural" toys, it´s basically all plastic.

 

Any ideas? 

 

Thank you!


Trin with DH , DD(7)  and DS(5) ,  DD(2) ,
I am not regularly online at the moment due to the above ...

Last year I made my kids aprons and wrapped them with a pack of cake sprinkles. Both my 6 year old DD and 3 year old DS loved them. A pack of silicone cake cases would be good with it too.

 

The eye spy bags have also been well used. They are not something the kids seem to get out a lot at home but they have kept them busy in many a waiting room

Accessories for her doll are fun - simple clothes, a sling, diapers, a quilt and pillow, sleeping bag etc.

She might like a matching pillowcase dress - one for her, one for her doll

 

Adventure bag (just a messenger bag) with a bug collecting jar, magnifying glass and a small sketchbook or field guide (and a promise of a hike).

 

An art carryall  - there are tutorials all over the web- they basically have a place for crayons or pencil crayons and a sketch book

 

A fairy house making kit - lots of natural bits, a small bendy doll fairy in a storage basket

 

I'd peruse One Pretty Thing for ideas!

good luck
