Special gift for a sad 8yo girl with cancelled birthday party
My daughter's birthday party got cancelled this spring (like many many others) and she is understandably very sad over it. Family is sending gifts to open on her birthday over video conference and she will get a song from family over video conference but it is not the same. I want to get her a gift or several to make the birthday more special since she cannot get her normal big party and won't get the usual many gifts from friends. Any ideas of something special to get an 8 year old girl to cheer her up. I want something more special than usual but as our usual gifts are outings or tickets to shows/event (which are no longer an option now and I don't want her to wait unknown amount of time to get to enjoy her gift) I cannot think of anything to get her now and she is not really into any of her toy sets so adding to a collection is not an option either. She has a lot of activities continuing over zoon and is over it so adding another cool activity over zoom is not an option. I was considering getting her own ipad but not sure I want to have the argument about limiting screen-time when the device is hers though her own device is tempting with all the school work lately and i cannot think of anything else. I know this is such a first world problem at this point but I really want to cheer up my little girl on her birthday. Any ideas? I know many birthday parties are cancelled so figured others might have done something special as well and maybe there is something big I'm missing.
