What to Look for in Gifts for 8 Year Old Girls
Are you shopping for an 8-year-old girl and not sure what to buy for her? As far as milestones go, 8 is considered part of middle childhood. The CDC breaks up middle childhood into two age groups – 6 – 8 years of age and 9 – 11 years of age.
For the first part of middle childhood, she will be hitting emotional and social changes such as friendships becoming more important to her, being more independent from her family, and wanting to be liked and accepted. Now, some children are advanced, so it is essential to understand that she will soon be experiencing more peer pressure. Putting all these different emotional and social changes together while gift-giving means that we should remember her age and that she is growing up.
She may prefer clothes, accessories, and activities suitable only for kids 7 – 8 and older and not ones that younger children can use.
Her thinking and learning milestones show the rapid development of mental skills at this age group. They will be able to describe how she thinks and feels better than ever before. As she gets older, she will also be facing more academic challenges at school and have an increased attention span.
With these milestones in mind, you may want to get her activities and toys that focus on STEM learning or are just educational in general.
Finally, you should focus on the things she really likes and wants. At this age, that could mean less pretend play and roleplaying toys and more art projects, activities, games, books, clothes, and accessories.
