No batteries required gift ideas for girls ages 8-11

We live in a world full of technology and screens. I actually love technology and I think there is a lot of benefit to having them in the home, but sometimes it’s nice to have a break from screen time and enjoy toys and activities that don’t need to be charged or plugged in. Some days it’s nice to have toys that don’t make any noise, but the reason I love battery free toys the most is that they encourage and enrich imaginative play.
