Gift ideas for 3-6 year olds can be hard to think of. They’re at that awkward age where they’re too big for early years toys, but not big enough for everything their older sibling has to play with. This age group still love a bit of imaginative play and are ready to be introduced to the world of technology.

Ages 3 – 6 are the most important when when addressing learning to hold a pencil, write and draw, so why not make it extra fun by introducing these brightly packaged, sweet-scented Smencils? Each graphite pencil has its own sweet smell which is guaranteed to last for 2 years! Buy from DKL Toys.
Johnson’s Baby Bath Products RRP from £2.99
When my daughter was at nursery, she was obsessed with pamper products. She would ask to smell my bath products when I bought them and insist she needed her own hand cream and lip balm when she was only four. I felt that the products I bought for myself weren’t really suitable for such young skin, so I would buy her Johnson’s Baby stuff. It ticked all the boxes, the bottles looked pretty, it smelled nice and still provided plenty of bubbles at bath time. It’s the perfect pamper range for little girls (and boys – my son is a bubble bath fan too) . I even pinch some myself. I had a bedtime baby bath bubble bath only the other night! Buy from Boots, keep an eye out for offers.
Sew Your Own Tsum Tsum RRP £9.95
If you’ve got some crafty youngsters to buy for, why not get them a kit to make their own toys? This sew your own Tsum Tsum kit is suitable for ages 5+, and would make a lovely gift for any child who like to make things. They’ll feel a rush of pride when they’ve sewn their Tsum Tsum and it looks exactly like the ones you can buy in shops. Buy from Amazon.
Amazon Fire Tablet: Kid’s Edition 8″ HD Display RRP £129.99 (on offer for £89.99)
Products from Amazon.co.uk
There is so much for children to do on tablets these days. I know there is a lot of discussion about whether children should be allowed much screen time, but I think as long as you’re sensible and monitor it, there’s no harm done. There are so many educational apps that disguise learning well, you’d be missing out if you didn’t grab a tablet for your child. Especially at this price!
