Default DD loves to play school- need gift ideas for her bday

She'll be 7 soon and I'm at a loss at what to get her. She loves to play school. Is there play school type of stuff? Thoughts?

We have an easel type thing from Ikea that my mom bought my girls about 10 years ago and it has gotten so much use for pretend school. It has a chalk board on one side and a dry erase board on the other and you can also put a roll of paper through it.

I used to love to do this as well. My mom gave me some ledger books that I used as rolls. I have seen similar items at office stores and even the dollar stores sometimes.

A rubber stamp so she can "grade" papers.
A home made name tag that says Ms.___.
An electronic pencil sharpener.
Her own stapler.
pads of stickers.

These are just some of the things my kids have loved using when playing school.

for Christmas I went to the dollar store and bought lots of teacher/school supplies for my daughters to play school. I then put it in a cute bag, so it's easy to find! They use it with their Ikea chalkboard! My girls love to play school and they love all the cute supplies!

Check out the clearance section of your local teacher supply store.nbeyond a chalkboard and or dry erase some grading stickers, post it's, and small notepads would be great.
