Best gifts for 4-year-old-girls
Pretend Play Gifts for 4-Year-Olds
Four years old It’s an exciting age because there are lots of fun activities and toys that will fit with your child’s attention span.
4-year-olds love to do what you’re doing (even if you don’t think it sounds like very much fun). A food/kitchen set will help them do lots of “big person” tasks like a grocery store, making dinner or setting up shop. It’s a fun way for young children play pretend.
Girls sometimes need a magical place to play, think or read. A tent with sparkles does just the trick! Throw in a cute sleeping bag and your little princess and her close friends will have hours of fun.
A doctor’s kit can be SO useful, and it can start off talks with younger children about our bodies and keeping yourself healthy too!
Motor Skills Gifts for 4-Year-Olds
Lego is always one of the most favorite things — but take it up a notch for your little girl and get one of the princess sets! Not only will her imagination run wild, she’ll love to do it with a favorite princess friend!
Pogo sticks seem fun — but can be scary if you’re not coordinated right. This one is a good option for little kids to enjoy the jumping, with less risk.
What 4-year-old doesn’t want to make their own jewelry? This fun, colorful set is on of the best toys– and bonus points because putting the beads together will help important eye-hand coordination skills they need.
Or, get a building set of another variety. I like how, with this one, you use a wrench to build!
One of my favorite ways for 4-year-old motor skills is stickers. Plus, it’s stickers. I love PipSticks — it’s good quality stickers (no commercial characters) that your child can be imaginative with!
If your little one is an artist, a great way to encourage their art is a finger painting set. Or you can get them paintbrush sets that are a little larger for their little hands to grab. This would also be a good idea if the birthday girl wanted an art-themed party.
Educational Gifts for 4-Year-Olds
I absolutely love Kiwi Crate. We did it when my youngest was 4 (I wish it had been around with my other 2 though). It’s great to get, and spread out through the month to learn more about the things in the kit. Kiwi Crate is a great option. I love that they have options for older children too.
Another one, fairly similar (I prefer Kiwi Crate, but it’s a close call) is Green Kids crafts.

Socks are way more fun than they were when I was a kid. This set is perfect for an animal lover. They are fun little gifts.
Also, if you’re looking for shoes, Flip Critts sent me a pair. They’re like Crocs but more sturdy and give kids feet more support. Plus, they come in lots of fun patterns and colors!
Or, have you seen the Squishmallows? They’re a great one to cuddle up with in bed. Or put your head on when you’re looking at a good book.
They are so cute and SOFT — awesome for a friendly 4 year old!
The most important thing is that you keep your child’s interests in mind on their special day and they will have a good time with whatever birthday treats or small toys you get them.
