With Christmas just a little over a week away, you may still be looking for that special gift for your little one. When your wee ones are pretty small, you can get them pretty much any toy. They will be happy. But as they grow and mature, they become a little more choosy in their toy choices. With five-year-olds, they are just starting to come into their own. They are learning about independence and boundaries. They are also learning how to communicate their needs and wants better. Of course, this may mean that they’ll be asking for everything they see on the television. We all know that’s of course not possible. So, we’ve compiled a list of the seven best gifts for 5-year-olds! Check it out below!

Kids love to turn anything and everything into a “fort.” Whether that be with pillows, dining room chairs, or the kitchen table. It will become a fort at some point in time. With this awesome Crazy Forts! set, they can build their very own fort! They will have fun putting it together. Plus, they will feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of building it. That is because it is something they did with their own hands. After building is done, all they have to do is add a bedsheet. That’s it – now they have a cool fort that they built themselves!
