Running out of ideas on what to get for your little one this Christmas? Don’t worry, help is at hand. We’ve compiled a list of amazing Christmas presents for children that could soon see them doodling on a special backpack, playing tunes on a mini piano or making their own film from scratch. The sky’s the limit.

Zip and Zoe Colour and Wash Backpack

Kids are forever being told not to doodle on surfaces that aren’t paper. However, studies increasingly show that doodling is a sign of intelligence. This colour-in backpack from KIDLY will direct that urge to scribble into the right place. Let them bring the cartoon fabric to life with washable fabric felt tips. And if they get bored of their original design? Just bung the bag in the washing machine and start again. It’s a little small to hold A4 folders, but perfect for pre-school or days out. £14

Writing needn’t be dull, especially with this Roald Dahl-themed storytelling game, available at Waterstones. Tap into your child’s imagination by simply rolling the dice.

Encourage your offspring to jot down their ideas using the paper and coloured pencils provided. Alternatively, they could illustrate it, following in the footsteps of Quentin Blake, or create a storyboard for their upcoming blockbuster film. Ideal for reluctant writers aged 5+. £11.99
