GIFTS & TOYS FOR 6 YEAR OLDS – TOT GIFT GUIDE

Gift guide for 6 year olds

Oh to be six!

At this wonderful age, kids are going full steam ahead at school, gaining independence by the day and getting a firm grasp on the world around them. They’re able to express themselves much more clearly, which makes playing with friends or chatting with family at home even more meaningful.

 

Child Development at 6 Years Old

When shopping for a six year old, it’s important to choose things that encourage them to express themselves, challenge themselves, but most importantly – have fun.

At the age of six, many kids are able to partake in more complex play. Whether they’re influenced by other kids at school or a play they saw on the weekend, children can now really let their creativity and imaginations run wild, which is why things like costumes or role play sets can be fantastic gifts. However, they’re also more emotional, which is why gifting things that allow them to have quiet time to reflect is also a good idea. Things like play dough, building sets and puzzles can be great for this!

It’s also important to remember that kids have a lot of energy to burn off and will love engaging in active play. Things like bikes, scooters and swings are an absolute must!
