For a 5 year old girl, one of the most important things to learn is how to write numbers and letters, as well as draw different geometric shapes. Your little girl may or may not already have some experience with this, but whatever the case, the Light-Up Tracing Pad from Crayola will be a useful and fun learning tool.
As the name suggests, it is basically a backlit LED screen which allows your kid to trace letters and images with ease. You can also download pictures for free, so there is a virtually infinite pool of ideas at her disposal. Once she is done tracing, it is up to her to use her imagination and add her own ‘spin’ to the original picture, by using crayons, stickers and other materials.
This gift will wake up the artist within your child, encouraging creativity as well as working on her fine motor skills and dexterity.
