Gift Ideas for a 5-Year-Old

Gift Ideas for a 5-Year-Old

Five year olds can be so much fun. They are now old enough to understand basic rules for playing games and they love playing with other people, especially adults. Their imaginations have grown so they can engage in role play games and toys and their fine and gross motor skills are getting so much better. Taking all this into account, there’s a huge amount of toys that you could give a five year old – the problem is trying to select the best gift for the five year old you know! If you like to choose from lots of options, you can find my full range of toys and games for 5 year olds here. However, if you don’t have time and you want a bit of help narrowing it down, here’s a shorter list of my favourite gift ideas for a 5 year old.

  1. The Beetle Game

The aim of this game is to be the first person to assemble a complete beetle but you only ‘win’ a beetle part depending on the number on the dice. Great fun for the whole family or to play with friends. This set comes with 4 beetles to assemble, so four people can play at once.

  1. Craft Materials

Children this age love making things and decorating pictures. Often they will love getting a few small craft items more than one large present. This 4-in-1 Craft Pack would make a lovely gift or if you’re looking to give something slightly bigger, this craft box would be great. I also stock a large selection of stickers which go down really well with creative children. Here are the Knight ones.

  1. What’s Up Game

This game is easy enough for a five-year-old to play as each card has a picture as well as the written word. The aim of the game is to guess what is on the card that’s attached to your forehead by just asking ‘yes/no’ answered questions.
