Here are some stocking stuffers for kids they’ll use and love all year long. It’s not junk and you won’t regret having given it to them!
As parents, we’re always excited to celebrate the Christmas season with our kids.
Our minds are mostly overwhelmed with ideas on how to make their Christmas a meaningful one.
Having stockings or “Santa Sacks” filled with fun and cute gifts is a fantastic Christmas tradition that will make their Christmas morning even more magical.
However, finding stocking stuffers your kids will love can feel tricky.
They need to be smaller than the average gift and fun to keep the kids entertained, so you don’t feel like you wasted a ton of money on junk.
Stocking Stuffers for Little Kids
Worry no more!
I’ve put together these great stocking stuffer ideas to make your kids holiday season a fun and magical one.
Just about every kid can be entertained for hours with play-doh!
It is fun, squishy, and colorful and great for imaginative play. It’s a very creative and interactive activity for kids of all ages. You can play and experiment, making different shapes or animals with them.
So, collect every color and see your kids face light up on Christmas morning.
To complete the play-doh experience, your kids will definitely need this party pack of colorful cutters, molds, rollers and play accessories.
It can help their imagination run wild and help them bring everything to life.
With its vibrant colors and an adorable animal theme, your toddlers and preschoolers (and even early elementary aged kids who have time on their hands) will surely have fun with this play-doh tools set.
My kids absolutely LOVE flashlights and headlamps. They will have flashlight wars in dark rooms and keep them by their beds if they have to do the Long Hallway Walk To The Bathroom.
Useful and fun. WIN WIN.
Kids love to copy their parents, and one activity that intrigues most toddlers is shopping. Giving them a pretend-to-spend wallet that fuels their imagination and lets them pretend to shop will spark their creativity.
Use this pretend money to teach your preschoolers the value of money and a great life skill.
Music can bring them joy and entertainment for hours on end. You could play their favorite Christmas song and let them sing and dance along and play with these musical instruments.
You could choose to gift them all at once or break them up into smaller gifts.
Each of my kids have a mini Nerf gun and we keep them up in a high closet.
When things get hairy, I bring it out and we have an all out Nerf war. This is an epic gift. Especially if you give them a gun as a separate present, and the darts as a teaser in the stocking.
In fact, we are having a Christmas Eve Nerf War between family so… I just ordered these myself. :)
Kids love to be messy, and this washable paint is a safe way to let your kids go wild.
They can start learning to paint, show their creative side or just generally throw it everywhere. You could make the whole Christmas stocking craft themed by combining this with colourful paper, brushes, stamps and other painting tools.
Don’t forget to include an apron in their stocking and even get one for yourself so you can have some fun being messy too!!!
These are awesome gifts for the imagination. Kids can use them to make forts, play dress up, and any number of other things.
Dress up clothes are just literally the best things ever.
Whether it’s Uno or Phase 1 or Spot It or the like… early elementary aged kids LOVE these kinds of games.
My kids absolutely love a good board or card game, and these small ones are great stocking stuffers.
While these are not the most eco friendly things around (hello plastic and glow in the dark… whatever) they are super fun. The kids love to put them on at night, for parties, or for special occasions.
They would make a great family tradition as well. Wearing necklaces on night walks or for New Year’s Eve, etc.
