What's your "go to" gift for 6 yr old boys and girls?

I need to stock up on some gifts for 5 and 6 year olds since we're being invited to lots of parties these days. Plus, we need to stock up for the Holidays. What's your "go to" gift for kids this age?

My 5 & 6 year old DDs love anything art related. Colored pencils, crayons, markers, coloring books, sketch books, colorful paper, glitter glue, etc...

Homemade Playdough with some cookie cutters, small rolling pin, and baking sheet ($1 at Dollar Tree). The rolling pin is around $1.50. And then I buy those cookie cutter sets after holidays (there are 3 in pack) or with coupons for around $1.00 or so. I usually keep a stash of them (Halloween packs, Christmas packs, Snowmen, Princess, etc).

Re: What's your "go to" gift for 6 yr old boys and girls?

Last year with the preschool 4-5 I was getting puzzles. My daughters class 7-8 I was getting legos or crafty things.

I do like to get craft like things - because most eventually get used up and are always useful. There is also a Melissa and Doug sticker book at one of my local stores right now that I bought for a little girl in my son's class that I know we'll be invited to her b'day. It is fingernails and jewelry stickers that you decorate the girls pictures with. My daughter (9) took one look at it and said "I want that". I'm wondering if there is a boy equivalent. I'm going to be looking next time. It was $4.99 which is right in line with what I like to be spending as an entry level.

Legos! I stocked up a few months ago when they were on sale at Target and we've given them at every party since.
