As kids get older I find it harder to buy gifts for them. Often I find that they just want money or computer games, both of which, I hate giving. Call me old-fashioned, but I love taking time to choose gifts for children and I find that when I give money, they often spend it on things that aren’t good for them (like chocolate or games that mean their faces are stuck to their screens!)
If you are similar and you have a ten-year-old to buy for, check out these ten toys that I’m happy to recommend. If you want to buy something cheaper or more expensive or none of these just jump out at you, check out my full range of toys for ten-year-olds here.
This is a fun game for the whole family. It comes with 1 pack of ’50 questions’ cards and a bell and the aim is to be able to answer the questions without answering yes or no. It’s much harder than it seems!
This is a really good value science kit that combines crafts to look at the science of codes and riddles. It’s clever and yet simple enough for ten-year-olds to enjoy and grasp.
This Tie Dye Kit comes with 3 bottles of dye, elastic bands, plastic gloves and instructions on how to tie dye your clothes.
This very much would depend on the child but I know several ten year olds that love pretty, cute things and this jewellery box definitely fits into that category. It’s perfect for storing all kinds of treasures.
This set of wooden dominoes are on the more expensive end of gifts but would make a great gift for a ten year old who likes precision and challenge. It has 208 pieces to line up and attempt to knock down in one go.
This lovely wooden chess set would make a great gift for a ten year old who loves the game but doesn’t own their own board yet or for someone who wants to learn how to play chess.
This is a really fun game where you have to try and guess who the other players are describing.
I gave this balloon animal kit to my daughter when she was ten and she loved it.
This pack of 8 textile markers would delight any creative ten year old as they get to make colourful designs on fabric and personalize their clothes.
If the ten year old you are shopping for has more of a head for science, they might really like learning and experimenting with static electricity.
I hope this has helped give you some inspiration. Nine and ten-year-olds are quite similar, so maybe you’d like to read my ten gift ideas for nine-year-olds too or my gift ideas for 11 and 12 year olds?
Enjoy the rest of the Easter break,
