By Laura Fiebert | Updated: February 6, 2023

    No longer a 6-year-old boy but not quite an 8-year-old, what does a 7-year-old kid like to do for fun? If you’ve arrived at this page, you’re probably pondering the same thing, so we’re here to help.

    What kind of things do 7-year-olds like?

    At this age, they’re experimenting with new interests, learning about the world, and figuring out who they are. They love to think, play, explore, create, and experiment. They also love to laugh and go fast.

    What makes a great gift for their birthday or holiday wish list? Educational gifts actually make the best toys and are a wonderful idea. Today, many STEM toys don’t feel like “education” – they’re exciting experiences and a chance to explore and create. 

    You won’t find any nerf guns or Crayola Crayons on this list (though they can be fun and useful gifts.) Instead, we’ve got an array of unique and surprising gift ideas like an Avenger Inventor Kit, robot balls, walkie-talkies, a scooter, an indoor basketball set-up, cool book collections, stop-motion moviemaking, an “out there” duvet set, and much more.

    What is the best present for a 7 year old boy?
