Gift Idea for five year old girl

I was thinking what to get for my niece Sharanya ( 5 yrs) as rakhi gift .

She loves cartoon characters hello kitty ,tinker bell, my little pony ,strawberry shortcake etc So, I decided to shop for various little things she would love.

I bought ……
• T-shirt, tank top, socks – Gap
• Sun glasses- Disney Tinker bell
• Compact mirror- Strawberry Shortcake
• Stickers- My little Pony , Disney princess , Hello kitty
• Note pad – Hello kitty

Next step was to pack them in such a way that makes everything look extra special. I knew I had a shoebox that was colorful and pretty and matched with character colors.

Here’s the lid to the box I made for my niece. To cover the logo on the box and the price sticker on sides of the box ,I took a printout of hello kitty and pasted it on the lid of the box and added some heart stickers .

Materials Required:
• Shoe-Box (colorful one saves time)
• Printout of any favorite character (Hello kitty)
• Heart stickers (any shape will do )
• Glue
• Scissors
• Tissue
• Regular scotch tape
• Little gifts

I had lots of fun packing all these gifts and my niece just loved the box.

Foam stickers are easy to peel and stick for toddlers. My son’s interest for peeling stickers made me start a journal for him and slowly I could see his improved motor skills . Then , we went ahead and encouraged him to stick according to color ,shapes or type. Then came this brilliant idea to fill the heart with foam stickers of different shapes and colors .

Materials required :
Foam stickers ( Used CREATOLOGY shapes stickers from MICHAELS store )
White paper / Construction paper

Step 1 : Draw a simple heart or any other shape
Step 2: Ask kids to fill it with foam stickers

Lessons Learnt : This craft activity is great for learning shapes and colors while practicing fine motor skills .
Valentines Mosaic Heart cards : Foam Mosaic hearts can be excellent Valentine cards and kids will love to make it for their friends.
