what to give a five-year-old this X'mas
We have a five-year-old kid in the house who loves to paint. Whenever we go to a department store she'd always look for stuff she could use for painting and would always ask us to buy one for her. The bad thing is, it makes our house messy. She uses a lot of paper and water that she mixes with the colors and this activity creates dirty colors everywhere----in her hands, face, legs, sofa, floor, etc. So definitely we are not giving her anymore of those stuff. Which leaves us with a problem. What do we give her this X'mas that she will appreciate?
Dolls seem to be temporary favorites of hers and they never last as their torsos and extremities seem to be bound to be broken or detached. Clothes do make her happy but after that she'd still look for toys, like clothes are not supposed to be gifts. She used to have a dollhouse complete with all the furniture which got lost after a while.
A toy computer? Hmmmm.....could cost much, but we'll see.
