Four-year-old boys enjoy more than just balls and toy cars for Christmas. If you have a 4-year-old boy on your Christmas gift list, get him something unique. Creative gift ideas for a boy this age are interactive items, gifts that promote learning or physical activities or are electronic. The following Christmas gift ideas are unusual yet age-appropriate.

Crayon Maker

Help a four-year-old bring new life to old, broken crayons. A crayon maker lets the child create miniature crayons with the included starter parts or his own crayon stubs. The crayon maker machine looks like a mini, mobile laboratory, which creates drawing tools by melting crayons in special metal trays that are covered by a clear safety lid. The child melts the crayon colours individually and then pours them into different moulds using a lever on the outside of the machine to create a multicoloured crayon. This unique gift encourages creativity and colour experimentation. Complete this gift with a scribble pad or colouring book.

Spaceship Aquarium

Many 4-year-old boys would be eager to receive a pet for Christmas. But responsibility of pet ownership simply is too significant for a child that age. Therefore, provide the sense of pet ownership with a fish as a "starter" pet. Unusual fish tanks are available, such as spaceship-shaped aquariums. One type available at many online and brick-and-mortar retailers is a small, A ¾-gallon tank with background images of planets and stars that glow in the-dark. The aquarium also has 3-D planets and a light-up UFO aquarium cap to make the aquarium look like a space city. This type of aquarium is perfect for one or two fish, such as guppies, tetras or goldfish. A single beta could also live in this space-age tank.

A Live-Action Electronic Game

Give a 4-year-old a Christmas gift that will get him off the couch and moving. A live-action electronic game is a mix between the classic game of Twister and the latest interactive video games, but it does not require a video game console. This game has a centre pod that branches out into four differently coloured and numbered units. The main pod plays music, keeps score and calls out commands such as "Crisscross," "Jump to blue, "Tag number three," "Reverse jump" and so on that directs the child to use his hand or feet to touch a specific coloured or numbered unit. A child can play this game on his own or with up to seven friends. Levels of play range from basic colour recognition to more advanced math games for those in elementary school.
