Tips/websites please. She has all the usual art materials but loves kits and making things. Anything to stimulate her imagination is good. And board games.

Go to Amazon and look up the foll-
Creativity for kids
Orb Mosaics
Wild science
They all have fantastic art/crafts kits.

100 dolly pegs and a bundle of pipecleaners and a sack full of fabric scraps and glitter and sequins etc etc.

I made my DD 100 peg dolls to go on her wall when she was teeny tiny, and we still make more now. Friends make one when they come, I get them in the post. We have peggy monk, peggy teacher, peggy DD, peggy mermaid etc etc etc

Buttonbag sewing kits are nice, or crafts from Yellowmoon such as felt sewing kits and shell beads for making necklaces.

A game I recommend is Lego Creationary which is very creative and fun for all ages.
