Players take turns removing sticks; the object is to not let the marbles fall. As play continues, it will become more and more difficult. Sometimes a few stray marbles will fall. Whoever removed the last stick will take those marbles. Eventually, the remainder of the marbles will fall. The winner of the game is whoever has the least amount of marbles in front of them at the end of the game.

What to Look for in Gifts for 5-Year-Old Girls

Whether you have no children or your children or older or younger, shopping for a 5-year old girl can be so much fun. The clothes and room decorations are colorful and bright, and the toys have come a long way. There are so many choices of what you can buy, sometimes the struggle is not buying too much!

If you are looking for one perfect present, you might not know how to narrow down your choices! When shopping for a young child, there are two different things to focus on in the present you buy. Choose one of these categories and go from there:

Toys or activities that are educational or that help childhood development.

Toys, Activities, clothing, or other accessories that highlight their personalities and favorite things.

Let’s start with education and development. Young children are rapidly learning and developing, so picking out toys that help with these developmental milestones is pretty easy. Most toys are made with them in mind.

Developmental milestones are broken down into 4 categories – language and communication, social and emotional, movement and physical development, and cognitive. According to the CDC, some typical milestones for a 5-year-old would include:

  • Can copy and triangle and other geometric shapes.
  • Can count 10 or more items.
  • Speaks clearly.
  • Says name and address.
  • Shows more independence.
  • Uses silverware.
  • Swings and climbs.

When shopping for toys to help with development, you can shop for stem toys that focus on science and engineering. You can by building toys, make-believe play (dolls, kitchens, fireman outfits, etc.), or you can buy educational toys and activities (workbooks, reading books, tablets, or other electronics meant for children this age).

The other place you can focus on is who they are and the activities or characters they love. As long as they have already been exposed to these items – at this age, you will know if they like painting, drawing, dolls, building toys, or board games. You should have an idea what their favorite characters are or if they like princesses, fairies, or butterflies.

Use what you know to pick out a gift that they will love. Be sure to think more about the child in question, not their parents, siblings, or cousins. You are shopping for the things they love, not what other people want them to have or think they should like.
