By 5-years-old, little girls reach an in-between stage of childhood, they are no longer little pre-schoolers or toddlers but aren’t quite “big kids” yet either. By 5 many children will have started school and as such will feel much more grown up and able to control themselves, and their behaviour, better as they listen to their teachers in school. However, emotional outbursts will still be common as self-regulation is only just beginning.
Physically you will notice plenty of changes in a 5-year-old as they slim out, become taller and demonstrate so much more coordination and skill in their movements. Keeping children active and healthy at this age sets up good habits for years to come. The gifts included in this list take into account a 5-year-old girl’s stage of development, and are carefully selected to help support this as well as appealing to a range of different interests.
