Christmas can be an expensive and stressful time, especially if you have children to buy for and don’t have the budget to buy the latest technology, consoles or gadgets. If, like me, you have family and friends with children of all different ages, and only a thin layer of money to spread between them, finding gifts that are fun and interesting but not too pricey can be a challenge.

Six-year-olds are at an enchanting stage of development, filled with curiosity, imagination, and a zest for life. They are eager explorers, continually expanding their understanding of the world around them and developing their social skills, forming friendships, and establishing their sense of identity. Their world is a canvas of endless possibilities,

In this gift guide, I’ve listed fun, unusual and cute gifts that I hope will spark joy, ignite creativity, and foster a sense of wonder in children around the age of six.

Gifts For Six Year Olds

HeyDoodle Wipe Clean Mats

Founder of HeyDoodle, Beatrice, a dedicated mother of three, envisioned HeyDoodle as a way to enhance children’s learning experiences while considering the planet’s well-being. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Beatrice and her team of stay-at-home moms have put their hearts into designing and assembling these innovative products.

The magic lies in the simplicity and convenience of HeyDoodle’s wipe-clean mats. Once a masterpiece is complete and a child wants to have another go, a simple wipe with a damp cloth resets the mat, ready for new adventures in creativity. This feature makes HeyDoodle mats perfect for various settings, from travel, cafes and restaurants to appointments, waiting rooms, office receptions, and at home.

Printed on premium grade silicone, the A3 reusable colouring mats come in a range of themes and activities to engage curious minds. Comes with 9 non-toxic markers and a handy carry case ready to go with you. Easily wipe clean with a damp cloth.
