 12+ Creative Gift Ideas for Girls (that aren't pink)

When my sweet little girl was born, I swore that she would not wear anything pink or have princess toys. And, that lasted about three months.

Once she was able to grab for, well anything, she gravitated to pink and sparkly. She still does. However, she also loves to get dirty and isn't afraid to stand up for herself. She loves LEGOS and Minecraft. She likes math and science in addition to art and reading. And, she loves anything pink and girly but has a dark side too. I hope this never changes.


While planning her Christmas list, she asked to browse Amazon with me. Okay, I was already on it and this just makes it easier for Santa to shop for her. These are some of the things we found that are educational, fun, and aren't all pink. All of our wish-list items also have four or more stars ratings and are Prime.

If you don't have Amazon Prime, now would be the time to do so! Holiday shopping and a free trial! Seriously.

Creative Gift Ideas for Girls That Aren’t All Pink and Girly

Fun with circuit boards! We have SnapCircuts which my son loved and my daughter wanted, but she had a hard time with it. Mind you, she was four at the time she is now six.

The reviews all say that they are limited and could be more educational, but that's not why I'm buying it. It's a toy with pieces that will get lost. The colors are more appealing to my little girl and there are fun projects geared to what she finds interesting. Also, littleBits are bigger pieces that snap together with magnets which is way easier to use.

K’NEX Education ‒ STEM Explorations: Swing Ride Building Set by K'Nex

K’NEX Education ‒ STEM Explorations: Swing Ride Building Set

Remember K'Nex! This is her favorite ride at the County Fair so it was no surprise that she was drawn to it. I love that like LEGO, K'Nex has endless possibilities after the original design is taken apart.

OSMO


Osmo Starter Set and Coding Set

Osmo Coding Set by Osmo has great reviews and makes coding look so easy on your iPad. We watched the video a few times and it would be worth letting her use my iPad since it does not support Kindle or any other tablets. The drawback is that you have to buy the Osmo Starter Kit. Which in itself is not a bad thing if you want to invest in this system.

Fun with Cooking

Fun with Cooking

There are so many amazing books and tools for kids to use in the kitchen. I never learned to cook until I was in my late twenties. Sadly, I had been living on my own for almost ten years, before I took to it. Both kids are learning now.

Cooking Class: 57 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Make (and Eat!) by Deanna F. Cook looks fun and healthy. And to make it more fun for the kids, I like the Curious Chef 17-Piece Measure & Prep or Veggie prep kits. As MasterChef Junior fans, we also like the MasterChef Junior Cooking Essentials Set - 9 Pc. Kit Includes Real Cookware for Kids, Recipes and Apron.

Piper Computer Kit | Educational Toy that Teaches STEM and Coding through Minecraft

Build a computer and play Minecraft!?! Fun for the whole family. This kit also has a solid FIVE-star review. But, the price is a bit scary.




MudWatt STEM and Science Kits

MudWatt Dough Lab: Bake and Learn Science Kit by MudWatt

Keeping with the cooking theme a little - MudWatt Dough Lab: Bake and Learn Science Kit. How fun to not just make bread, but to experience the chemical reactions that make it happen.

Grow your own living fuel cell is something to see to believe so, watch the video. It really is neat

LEGO Architecture White House

LEGO Architecture White House
There was a time that I had to convince my little girl that there were more to LEGO that LEGO Friends. She has finally incorporated them into other LEGO sets and is ready to take on the White House. Hey, she said she wants to be president!

Rory's Story Cube 

Rory's Story Cube

9 cubes, 54 images, and endless storytelling possibilities. Rory's Story Cubes are a favorite of mine to really stretch their imagination. With five-stars on Amazon, how can you go wrong with this stocking stuffer!?!

Master Kitz

Master Kitz

Out of all the toys on this list, Master Kitz are my favorite. From exploring Cubism and Surrealism to recreating some of the most famous paintings, there is something for every budding artist to learn about.

I seriously can not make up my mind on which kit to get either of my kids. There's Klimt’s The Tree of LifeFlower Myth by Paul Klee, Monet's Water Lilies and Van Gogh's Sunflowers and The Starry Night. Master Kitz also has kits for home parties. Groups of kids can make these masterpieces.

Thank you for looking at my list! I'd love to know what's on your girl's wish list this holiday season!
