34 Perfect Birthday Gifts For 5 Year Olds That'll Make Them Happy

By the age of five, children can participate in activities that were previously out of reach due to their physical, emotional, and social development. Writing their own names, jumping, climbing, and assigning playing roles are all likely skills in their arsenal, opening up a slew of new toys and gift alternatives.

Anything in the world of imaginative play, such as dolls and vehicles, or in the realm of creativity, such as finger painting, molding dough, and markers, can help encourage these skills while keeping youngsters active and away from computers (or active in front of screens at least). They're more interested in independent play with complicated play sequences, so they can go beyond recognizing simple shapes and colors.

If you're wondering what to purchase for 5-year-olds for their birthday, or if you just want to get your child ready for kindergarten with a few instructive learning presents, check out our list of terrific ideas.
