DD3 has been a video game/anime girl, however her interests have set her apart from girls her age somewhat. She has friends, but no one shares these interests. She likes art and she's gotten more into reading. But I'm wondering what to expose her to to broaden interests. So....what's your 10/11 yo into?

Thanks! DD is not a sporty girl but she does do girl scouts, art class, and violin lessons. And she does make videos for Youtube! Gotta check out the iMovie idea.

My 11 yo loves watching Property Brothers, Fixer Upper, Flea Market Flip on HGTV, and then she has an app on her iPad where she designs rooms/houses.

My 10 y/o also likes designing houses on an iPad app! Her main interests are sewing, crocheting & knitting, reading, and 1000 piece puzzles. She just got a pair of rollerblades and is obsessed with rollerblading now too. :)

Mine loves to read and is into all of the popular YA series (divergent, hunger games, etc). She also loves the movies. When she's with her friends they like to make funny videos on iPhones, do makeup and play Barbies.
