Best Gifts for 4-Year-Olds

Try these amazing gifts for 4-Year-Olds! Each of these gifts will help your child continue to learn, grown and problem-solve, plus they are super fun, too!

At the age of four a child’s brain is like a sponge. They’re working on fine motor skills, getting more independent and soaking in all the knowledge they can.

At 4 years old, many 4 year olds can be trusted to play with smaller pieces, opening up a whole world of fun new toys and crafts opportunities (as long as they don’t have younger siblings who might play with the small pieces, of course!)

Their imagination and problem-solving are improving and so is their speech and language, and they are able to focus longer on puzzles, games, and toys. It’s a really fun age, and it’s important to give 4 year olds new toys appropriate for their age so that they continue to grow and develop, instead of continuing to play with their baby toys.

Here are some of the best gifts for 4-year-olds that will help them learn, grow, and have fun.

I’m Not Just a Scribble Book

This is a great book with a valuable lesson behind it. Scribble, who is the main character, never thought he was different but ends up being left out because he didn’t look like everyone else. Scribble teaches the drawings to accept each other for who they are and enables them to create amazing art. The book also comes with stickers so children can create their own Scribble as they learn about different emotions and colors associated with feelings.
