How Do You Entertain a 6-Year-Old?
Kids who are 6-years-old love different kinds of activities, but it is important to keep the activities simple so they don’t get overwhelmed with timing or details. Playing together is always a hit, especially when you are taking part in the role play, drama, or scenario. Getting creative together with art or craft activities also falls into this category. Creating can also involve outdoor projects, around-the-house adventures, and cooking a meal together. As long as they feel involved, engaged, and have fun, you’ll win them over big time (1).
What Size Clothes Does a 6-Year-Old Wear?
The typical 6-year-old wears “little kid” sizes which cover 4 – 6X. Height and weight play a factor, but so do the measurements for height, hips, waist, and inseam. When kid’s sizes are grouped into small to large etc., 6-year-old kids usually wear a size small. It is still important to measure them and remember that different brands can size differently (2).
What Size Shoes Does a 6-Year-Old Wear?
While different shoe brands vary in sizes, you can go by a basic chart to locate the likely shoe size of your 6-year-old. Typical 6-year-olds could wear anywhere from a childrens’ size 12 – 13 US, which is an 11.5 in the UK and size 30 EU. Measuring also comes in handy here, since feet may not grow as fast or slow as the rest of a 6-year-old will (3).
