5th Birthday Gifts, Presents and Decorations

Five year olds are off to school, thinking about reading, writing, playing and making friends.

Safety is still important – be careful of bicycles and similar toys unless the child has a safe place to use them away from traffic and other hazards.

Suggestions: Five year olds can handle more advanced construction sets, cut-out paper dolls, hand and finger puppets. Extend art into modelling clay, stencils, paints and paint books. Imaginative play can be solo or involve friends. Outdoor activities include sandpits, flying kites, helping in the garden and some sports equipment. Indoor play can involve battery operated trains and other toys. Extend five year olds with more demanding board and card games.
