Your six-year old girl is growing in independence and may, occasionally, seem to act selfishly. Developmentally, she is moving towards abstract thought, yet she might remain rigid in her thinking. She wants attention and is engrossed in developing new friendships and school. Give your six-year old girl a gift that is appropriate for her physical and cognitive development.

Crafts

Crafts help with hand dexterity for writing. Choose gifts such as weaving or knitting kits that come with yarn and tools. Painting and other art supplies develop fine motor skills in six-year old girls. Consider purchasing a kit with which she can paint a wooden animal or toy vehicle. Large crafting supply kits which include pom-poms, sequins and beads are good for any type of craft project. Bracelet and other jewellery making kits are also available for developing young hands.

Board Games

Board games teach social and critical thinking skills for children. Moreover, children will learn to play fairly and to practice patience in waiting for others to take turns. Classic board games, such as Chutes and Ladders and Sorry, teach math and turn-taking. Scrabble Junior is good for learning vocabulary. Uno is a card game that also improves the skills of a six-year old.

Books

Many six-year old girls are reading on their own or are on the verge of doing so. Choose a chapter book or classic book with illustrations as a gift for a six-year old. "Little Bear" is a classic chapter book series about a young bear and his mother. "The Night Fairy" is a story about a young fairy and friendship. The 2010 Newbery Medal Winner, "Moon Over Manifest," is about a girl during the Great Depression.

Health Gifts

Promote healthy physical activity with a gift that makes your six-year old move. Skipping ropes and balls promote gross motor skills. Bikes and skates teach coordination in school-aged children. A yoga mat or fitness ball may be right for girls interested in yoga. A backpack with a compass would be a gift for a girl who enjoys hiking and camping. A leotard and ballet slippers would work for a six-year old interested in dance, while a ball and cleats would be appropriate for girls interested in soccer.
