Mimo is a cute kid. She is only 5 now but is way too smart. On her birthday there were more than 100 gifts for her. I asked her which she liked most. She seemed a bit confused first but quickly made her mind and showed me a big box of colored pencils.

Not only Mimo I know a number of kids who are fond of drawing tools like colored pencils, drawing pencils, sketch books and tube colors.

But every little ladies and gentlemen may not like drawing tools. There are many interesting gifts which can be given to a kid on his / her birthday.

Drawing Kits

A drawing kit is a popular item as birthday gifts to kids. A drawing kit may contain various types of color pencils like pastel colors or sketch pens etc. A drawing kit is good for making a child more productive. Drawing also develops his or her psyche. You may also give a more mature drawing kit containing brushes and water color tubes.

Construction Toys

Little Timmy imagines himself an engineer. He often shows his skills on his own toys, especially electronics one. Sometimes he also ventures to modify his elder sister’s toys which often results in violent civil wars. To please Timmy I gave him a construction box for kids on his birthday. This box has many plastic made parts to build something constructive. There are small tools to please the mini engineers too.

There are many types of construction tools available in the market. Some of which are for little kids and some are for elder groups.

      Creativity should be encouraged among children with suitable toys and habits.

      You are quiet right about musical instruments :). Be prepared for horrible humdrum at any time of the day or night by your little Mozart.

      Anyway thank you very much for stating your opinion @missingpiecepuz
