My niece is turninng 7 yrs. old on Easter and I need gift ideas for her. She is very active/engergetic. She likes gymnastics and riding her bike. I assume they will spend a lot of time at the pool this summer.My brother is getting her some sort of accessories for a rock wall at their gym (I assume it is a child's rock wall!). My mom is giving her roller skates. I thought of a bell for her bike, but that seems a little insignificant. Anyone have any suggestions?

What can I do next?

Hmmmm....tough one. I have a 7 yo boy.
What about elbow and/or knee pads for the bike & skates?

How about a new tote bag / flip flops / new beach / sunglasses / sunscreen / towel for the pool? Disney stores usually have cute stuff like that.

Craft kits.
She seems to have a lot of outdoor accessories/toys already.
So get her something different.

Or, a Razor scooter.
Or a book.... or magazine subscription.

Easter.... is like another "Christmas" for kids often times... wow!

Good luck,

Maybe you can take her and let her pick out a new bathing suit and a few accessories for the pool. Maybe let her pick out some flip-flops and a little bag to keep all her swim stuff in. Kids really like it when they get to pick out their own stuff. It gives them a feeling of independence that they rarely get. Or you could take her and let her pick out something she wants and she also gets some one on one time with her aunt.

How about a sprinkler to play in in the summer? Just an idea. You can usually find them pretty inexpensively at Walmart, Target, etc.

I got my granddaughter a skip it. not expensive but she is going to love it. (imagine jump rope only a whole different level lol) Put her together a little basket of stuff for the outdoors maybe sidewalk chalk, a skip it, a mirror and bell for the bike maybe if she has a regular/traditional name you might be able to get her a little license plate for the bike. spoke decorations etc. a jump rope and book of jump rope rhymes. a 2 square ball. all of those are just ideas we are using some of them for our grandkids. good luck
