Any gift ideas for creative young kids?

My son loves writing, drawing, creating models in plasticine... I'd love to get him some presents that excite the creative side of him. Any ideas?

A camera, a stack of clay, pens, pencils, drawing pads! Imagine the opportunities from creating claymations to digital stories, visual narratives and more. A camera will help train his eye for composition and colour too.

I am planning to provide my child with a whole range of new apps on the iPad that we could play together. I will create a special folder for them and we will spend marvelous time together. I am still in the process of selecting the apps. If you have any ideas please share:)

I agree with Magda and also suggest oil paints and some inexpensive canvas that you can hang on the wall.

First of all, it is fair to know the creative interests of the kids. Creativity is not confined to just drawings; therefore, parents need to identify where their children are excelling. Some have the capability to draw, some sing, some create, some can write best dissertations and some can even go to the extent of writing poetry. So, parents need to recognize and then give gifts such as colors, voice recorders, building toys, books, etc.
