What would you put in a sewing kit for a 9 year old? What kind of kit would you make for a 10 year old girl lego lover, whos a real tomboy?

I got a sewing kit when I was about nine!  I'd say a pair of scissors, a measuring tape, some pins (maybe with fun shrinki-dink heads on them), a pretty/personalised pin cussion that straps to the wrist, some handsewing needles, a couple needle threaders, a variety of colours of thread, extra bobbins, maybe a pattern for something like a stuffie or a hat.

As for the lego kit, i think that would get a little expensive...  Unless you did a sort of "open when bored" kit, with a small lego set, a deck of playing cards, maybe chinese checkers or something, a deflated soccer ball...  Or does she like to cook?  Then a kid-sized apron, chef's hat, and baking mits, a cookbook (I'd suggest the Silver Spoon for Children), and a fun shape of muffin tins.

in the sewing kit, could you include one of those quickie cross stitch kits? they're usually a good cross over - pins, needles, cushion, meas. tape, scissors, seam ripper, safety pins, and thread.

tomboy is a hard one, hey? unfortunately, we're a lego free zone in our house, as our kids aren't into them yet. sorry i couldn't be more help.
