Fun Gifts for 8 year old Girls

You can’t go wrong with these fun gifts for 8 year old girls!

Exploration- These girls are learning faster than ever and love it when their mind is stimulated! Do you have a nature loving, science loving, bug/leaf/shell collecting kind of girl? Crystal growing kits, butterfly habitats, science lab kits, and gardening kits encourage them to explore some more!

Imagination- Imagination is the basis for Story Creation. Young girls are great at this, often creating story lines with the toys available to them. Adults should love it because it is highly necessary skill for writing.  There are several ways this can be encouraged through play. 1. Interactive Pets- the cute and cuddly pet lovin girl still exists and her tastes have graduated from pure stuffed animal fun to a more interactive pet lovin taste. Any pet that can respond to her will peak her interest. An example of this is the Furreal’s Friend Bootsie. 2. Dolls- more sophisticated dolls such as life like or American girl make them feel more grown up 3. Lego Friends- particularly catering to girls, these sets allows them to build, then play. 

Crafts- Craft kits are great for this age. Everything from making soap to making duct tape purses to jewelry making kits. Many girls love drawing at this age as well. A simple sketchbook with some special markers (something more creative than just a set of crayola) or colored pencils would be a great gift.

On the Go- Lots of energy needs to be let out. Whether that be on the soccer field or playing in the backyard, give them things that’ll want them to be outside using all that energy. Trampolines, swings, scooters, skates, soccer goals, slip n slides, hoola hoops, etc.

    Hi Jen,

    What a great article, I really enjoyed the reading!
    My daughter is nine years old, but I am pretty sure she will fall in love with these ideas!
    All of them are great, but I think she will prefer the mermaid.
    I have bookmarked your website so I can show her this awesome article when she’ll come back from her summer camp!
    Thank you for this excellent post!

    Great ideas!
    I like special the idea about the Craft kits because I believe that it can develop, and enjoy the same time, the creative fantasy for the children. They need to think at the same time as they made some new things.
    So, in shorts words, you can give them a gift they both enjoy and are very good for the development.
    Are you agree?
