I am not going to lie, shopping for girls is fun. I don’t know if it is because I had 2 boys first before I had my daughter, or if I just enjoy shopping for the things I loved as a child but shopping for my daughter is fun. 4 year olds have just started kindergarten and are now starting to show interests in certain areas such as arts and crafts, building, imaginative play which makes it fun to buy something to encourage there new interests. 4 year old Girls are great to shop for because they are normally easy going, have a wide variety of interests and are excited about trying new things. If you have a 4 year old girl to shop for here are Toys for 4 Year Old Girls that she will love! Now, please don’t get hung up on the fact that I am writing this post for a 4 year old girl, these gifts would work for a 4 year old boy as well. If your looking for ideas for a younger child check out our Gift Ideas for Preschoolers, Toddlers and Babies.

Foam Alive for Mixing, Molding & Melting – 2 Colors of Soft, Squishy, Fluffy Foam – Kids love to play with sensory items that they can squish and mix in their hands so why not introduce them to Foam Alive. Foam Alive is a soft, squishy, and fluffy foam that “magically comes to life” when played with and touched and oozes as if its melting as it flows through your fingers. The greatest benefit of foam alive is that its not wet and messy and it never dries out so it can be used for a very long time. This is a great gift idea for girls who love to get there hands messy and love explore new textures.

Piggy Paint – These non-toxic, water-based polish do not wash or peel off. They come in dozens of vibrant shades, including my daughter’s favourite… PINK. Piggy Paint is virtually odorless, free of ALL harsh chemicals, and made in the USA. As soon as my daughter turned 4 she was asking for her nails to be painted. With Piggy Paint I don’t need to worry if she is putting her hands in her mouth.

At 4 years old kids are growing out of Lego Duplo, but not always ready with the fine motor skills and patients for regular Lego. That is where Lego Junior steps in. These Lego Junior kits are specially created for ages 4+ so that the designs are a little more detailed, however the pieces are still large enough for little hands. They are easy to build with simple instructions. With sets like this Roo is able to “play Legos” just like her older brothers do. Mermaid Tail Blanket
We have given a few mermaid tail blankets as gifts to the little ladies in our life. They are the perfect blanket to snuggle up with while watching a movie or reading a book. They come in several styles, colours and different materials. I love the the ones lined with minky as they are super soft.
Let their imagination come alive inside a Play Tent. From castles to houses to tents there are so many options and their imagination can take them anywhere. Tents can be used for play or as a calming area to have a little private place to go to read or rest. They can be set up for play time and packed away when done if space is an issue. A tent can be a great option for kids to get a little space from siblings or come up with creative ways to play.
Get crafty with a stamp set. You child can create detailed pictures and cards using stamps when they may not have the fine motor skills to draw small details. Create fun birthday cards, gifts and more. The sturdy wooden base of the stamps makes it easy to grip, and the rubber cleans up easily with water or a wet wipe. If you pick up a stamp set with letters you can also work on letter recognition, reading and spelling all while have fun during craft time.
