Elementary Girls Gift Guide -- The best gifts for elementary-aged girls (ages 6-12)

Here are our favorite Christmas gifts for elementary-aged girls (ages 6-12):


Jacquard Tie Dye Kit

Create up to fifteen t-shirts with this sweet kit. You can get inexpensive t-shirts at Michaels — sometimes as low as $2 during a sale.

Karaoke Microphone

These mics can be connected to your phone with cable or Bluetooth and then you open the singing app on your phone. I believe it comes with a carrying case, though I cannot confirm that in the listing.


Hair Chalk

A fun way to color the hair without all the mess of a real coloring kit. Include some shampoo and conditioner to complete the package.


Maxi Kick Scooter

These are HANDS DOWN the best scooters out there. Just stop looking. Read my review of the Maxi Kick Scooter here.

Nail Art Kit

You can get nail polish, nail stickers, polish remover and pads at your local drug store or the Dollar Tree. Consider putting it in a cute little polka dot cosmetic bag. Or get her a Caboodles cosmetics case and indulge the young girl in all of us.


Highlights Magazine

The best part of Highlights magazine is the hidden pictures puzzle. My younger daughter was given a magazine subscription last year and she has enjoyed it all year long.


High-Quality Art Supplies

We received a great suggestion for these Prismacolor Scholar Colored Pencils and they are great. Highly-rated, fantastic quality and long lasting.


LEGO Friends Sets

You can’t go wrong with a LEGO set and they have some great options for girls, but obviously all the sets will be fun. I particularly like the LEGO City and LEGO 3-in-1 Creator sets for girls and boys.


Melissa & Doug Fashion Design Activity Kit

Remember these when we were kids? I bought this last year for my daughters and they still play with it. Includes 16 pieces: double-sided, textured fashion plates, pencils, crayon, crayon holder and storage case.


Taste of Home Kid-Approved Cookbook: 300+ Family Tested Fun Foods

Master Chef Jr. has inspired the cook in many a child. Taste of Home is a reputable cooking magazine that produces some of the most delicious recipes so I’m certain their kid-approved cookbook will be a hit. Consider a bundle gift with an apron and set of baking utensils.


ALEX® Toys – Do-it-Yourself Wear! All Duct Out or the American Girl Crafts Owls Sew and Stuff Kit

Find these a little cheaper at Michael’s with a 40% off coupon!


Knitting & Crochet Supplies

Crocheting: Pick up this inexpensive crochet hook set + carrying bag and the My First Crochet Book.

Knitting: If knitting has more appeal pick up these Knitting Needles for Kids and Kids Knit!: Simple Steps to Nifty Projects book.

Yarn is often cheapest at Joann or Michaels with a coupon.

Just Between Us: A No-Stress, No-Rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms

Just Between Us: A No-Stress, No-Rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms

This is a really cool journal where moms and daughters answer questions and pass the book back and forth. Incredibly high ratings.

Michelle over at Remind + Inspire has some really fun journal prompts that would be a great addition to this gift.

Original Rubik’s Cube

This has been a really big hit in our house lately! There are tons of YouTube videos on how to solve the cube, which makes my inner 4th grade girl heart so happy.

Another hilariously vintage gift idea is the Magic 8 Ball! We’ve given these for multiple birthday gifts and they’re always a hit.

We’d love to hear from you! What is your favorite gift to give an elementary-aged girl?
