Tip: Buy a child-sized apron and have it personalized with the birthday child's name (also available at www.whatscooking.info). Wrap it in a box filled with child-friendly cooking tools (OXO makes wonderful ones that are great for small hands; for a large selection, go to www.surlatable.com). Combine it with a "make your own chocolate kit" or "make your own gummies kit." Even more fun, throw in a few of your child's favorite recipes – it might encourage a budding cook to start collecting his own. Go to www.whatscooking.info.

Hole-On Ex Paper Camera Kit ($20.00)
It seems impossible: making a real camera out of nothing but paper. This gift is sure to impress a young photographer. It’s also a great way to learn about the fundamentals of light, optics, and photography. In short, the Hole-On Ex is a make-and-shoot 35mm pinhole camera kit that comes with all camera parts printed on heavy, durable cardstock. A metal pinhole aperture is included. Simple and easy assembly requires only glue, a ruler, and a pencil. Plus, it can be ready for shooting in less than two hours! Go to www.momastore.org.

Tip: Add a roll of film to the package and a monogrammed photo album (www.potterybarnkids.com) or a gift certificate for free prints at a local photo shop.
