What present will £2.50 buy for a 3 year old girl?

Suggestions please!! My DD1 was given £2.50 by her grandparents instead of a chocolate egg for Easter and we've told her that she can spend it on something she'd like. But what can you get with £2.50? All I've thought of is hairclips (but she refuses to have her anything in her hair so that's a bit pointless) or some bubblebath but that seems a bit dull.

Suggestions please!!

an easter egg? all bound to be half price tomorrow...

She's got loads of books already so it would be nice for her to have something else. But I will suggest it to her.

And I'm definitely avoiding eggs as she's been given a fair few from other relations!

All the supermarkets had Easter soft toys - they'll all be half price.

Last week Sainsbury's had a nice 2.99 (half price last week) small bucket with a decorative rabbit garden spade and fork - nearly bought one.

Some seeds and a nice pot to sow sunflowers?

For under £2.50 ELC have some pocket money toys and other bits:
* small spade or fork for gardening - £2 each
* lots of arts stuff from under 50p to £1 a time
* plastic zoo/wild/farm animals for £1-£2 a time
* Learning to tie my shoe card - just over £1
* Jolly Phonics books - £1.50 a time
* Snap/ Happy Families cards - £2.50

necklace or bracelet or maybe even handbag? H&M, primark or claire's accessories should provide at least some options

Woolies has quite a few toys for £1.99 - dd's current obsessions are the tubs of playdough with a model of one of the disney princesses on top.

ingredients to make jam tarts?

small pack of pens or pencils? nice notepad?

Maybe if she buys her own hairclips/bobbles she will want to wear them?

Colouring book and crayons/pencils from Woolies?
