By the time kids are 7, the temptation is strong to give them something electronic as a gift. I feel the pull, and I hear what you’re saying. I definitely have given my kids electronic gadgets by their 7th birthday, which they have loved, at least for a short period of time. However, I try to be old school whenever I can. I like giving gifts that encourage creativity and open-ended play. Here are some ideas for the best gifts for 7 year olds based on what my own kids have enjoyed at this age.
One of my most favorite gifts for 7 year olds is this Magic Science kit. For being so inexpensive, I could not believe how fun it was for the kids. I actually bought 2 so that there would be more test tubes and supplies for the kids to share.
