Most first-graders fall between 6 and 7 years of age and have an endless range of interests. Girls in this age bracket are independent, curious and sensitive. While some little women have specific interests, others have a wide range of hobbies that challenge their minds and draw out their creativity. When selecting a gift for the little recipient's birthday, Christmas, Easter or any other occasion, consider one that is suitable for her age and inspires her.
Outdoor Play Equipment
Give the first-grader an outdoor activity play set such as a toy bicycle, tricycle, gym or swing set. Whether she likes to spend time outdoors or you want to encourage active outdoor play, a personal gift can inspire her to spend time outdoors in the natural setting while keeping herself entertained. Other options for outdoor play equipment include a sandbox with assorted tools, kiddie pool and inflatable toys, pedometers, trampoline and jump ropes. If the little lady has a favorite sport, give her a set of accessories in her favorite color or personalize the item by engraving her name across the top.
Inspirational toys that spark the imagination are always welcomed by little girls who like creative or role play. Most 6- to 7-year-old girls enjoy dressing up and play pretend. Depending on the recipient's particular interest, give a doctor's set that includes medical supplies, bandages, a stethoscope and a doctor's overall if she likes to play and aspires to be a doctor or vet, or a white board with board markers and an attendance register if she wants to be a teacher. A girl interested in science projects will appreciate a kit that revolves around her particular taste such as a collection of labeled jars and an insect catcher for the naturalist. Consider giving a complete princess set with a ball gown, wand, tiara and artificial jewels for the girl who plays princess, or a firefighter's apparel, kit and hose to the aspiring firefighter.
Some first-graders like solving puzzles and board games. Give her an age-related book that features slightly larger font and colorful pictures to encourage the habit of reading, or a puzzle with large pieces that is easy to assemble. Simple math puzzles and board games are also suitable for girls this age to sharpen their analytical and comprehension skills, as are drawing or coloring books.
Give the first-grader who likes to dress up a toiletries bag or gift basket filled with feminine accessories such as perfume, hand and body lotion, lip glosses, nail polishes, small bracelets, bath accessories, a bathrobe or items for her personal space such as posters of her favorite cartoon character, framed mirror or wall decorations. Although she may already have a lunch box, she will appreciate another one in her favorite color or featuring her favorite cartoon character.
