Games For 10-Year-Old Girls
Word A Round Game
The ThinkFun Word A Round Game is an Award-winning card game for children 10 and up. This is a card game and a word game wrapped into one. The game is meant for children to adults, 10 and up. You start with the top card and look at the black ring. Each ring has one word spelled, but you do not know where the word begins. For instance, in the photo above, the black ring has the abundant, the red ring has the word lunches, and the blue ring has the word expect. So whoever called out abundant first wins that round.
They take the card and play it flipped over in front of them. The back of each card could either be black, blue, or red. The color determines which ring people are trying to figure out on the next card. Play repeats until one player has 10 cards in front of them.
This game comes with 100 cards with a total of 300 words and easy-to-follow directions.

There have been many different versions of The Game of Life over the years. This is not exactly the original version, but it is pretty close.

Of course, if she ends up loving the Game of Life, you can always consider getting different versions in the future.
Ultimate Twister Party Game
The Ultimate Twister Party Game is the original, except it is a bigger mat with double the spots. This makes it perfect for an indoor or outdoor party. This is easy to set up and easy to understand but can be more challenging to play.
You just need to set up the board on an open surface and have room for the spinner. When someone spins, they will find out what body part (hand, foot – left, or right) needs to go on what color dot. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, it is called Twister for a reason! As the play goes on, players twist their bodies to put their hands and feet on the right spot, trying not to fall. The last one who has not fallen wins the game.

The Easy Drawing Book For Teens
If the child you are shopping for is interested in leveling up her drawing skills, you might consider The Easy Drawing Book For Teens book. Now, I choose a book for teens instead of a child of 10 or less because if at 10 they are still interested in drawing and improving, some of the books for younger children could be too simplistic for her at this point.

The Complete DIY Cookbook For Young Chefs
At 10 years old, children may want to learn how to cook things for themselves if they do not already have some basic understanding of how cooking and baking works. Usually, when parents, friends, and family teach kids how to cook, they do with family recipes and basics that most people can quickly master. There is nothing wrong with this, but it is also an excellent idea to get a book about baking and cooking for children their age.
The Complete DIY Cookbook For Young Chef’s is a cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen, so you know the recipes will be good, and the instructions and safety procedures will be even better. There is a large introduction the covers kitchen safety, typical things you will do with specific tools (like a bowl or a knife), why we use specific ingredients and how to do basic tasks like chopping or shredding.
The cookbook continues with 5 chapters of recipes – these chapters cover:
- Everyday staples
- DIY Mixes
This is a great way to introduce children to cooking. It can also be an excellent project to spend quality time together or give them to use when their friends come over.

What to Look for in Gifts for 10-Year-Old Girls
Whenever we shop for someone, we really want to get them the best present possible. Who doesn’t love seeing someone’s face light up because they are so happy with a gift we picked out for them. You get presents that create this type of reaction in someone by spending the time to really think about what they want, need, or would really enjoy.
Shopping for a 10-year-old girl may not be the easiest job in the world. However, you can certainly find a gift that she will love. When shopping for a child, I would always suggest that you either shop by their unique personality or shop based upon their age group and what milestones they may be about to hit.
According to the CDC, a 10-year-old girl would be in Middle Childhood. During this time in her life, she will start to go through some thinking and learning changes as well as some emotional and social changes.
For instance, this is when school starts to become more challenging. Middle childhood is when elementary school is finishing, and middle school is right around the corner. She will have more expectations placed upon her. However, she will also have an increased attention span and start seeing other people’s points of view.
She will also become more independent from her family and have stronger friendships that, while complex, become the center of her world. When you are shopping for a 10-year-old girl who is either going through these changes or about to, you should consider them when buying her present.
If you are more concerned about the learning aspect, you might want to buy learning toys and activities, STEM toys, or art supplies. Artistic presents can help her be creative and allow her an activity to lessen her stress levels. At this age, she will start feeling stress and anxiety about school, family, and friendships.
Social and emotional changes are a big deal. If she has a friend group that is important to her, you might want to think about how they spend their time together and get her toys, activities, and games that they can do together.
Of course, the other way to shop is to simply focus on who she is as a person. What does she like? What are her hobbies and interests? If you know she loves being active, maybe get her something new to try, like a skateboard or rollerskates. You can get her arts and craft projects or blank canvases, paint, and other standard art supplies if she is artistic.
It is essential to think about her, not other people her age or what her family wants. She is an individual and should be treated as such.
