Gift Ideas for 9-Year-Old Interested in Art

Good Questions

Q: I have a friend looking for a Christmas gift for her 9-year-old son. He has recently expressed an interest in art and asked for a sketchbook, but she would like to get him something a little more inspiring. The only thing I can think of is an art supply kit, but I'd love to get some good ideas from other readers. Is there some really amazing art book or game for children or does anyone have a particularly great art kit that their child loves? Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Editor: There's nothing more inspiring than seeing great art firsthand. If your friend lives near an art museum, perhaps she could pair an art supply kit with a card for a trip to the museum. Readers, what ideas do you have?
