Christmas is my jam and I love EVERYTHING about it. Church, with my family, to celebrate the birth of Christ. Volunteering together. Traveling to see loved ones. Donating my time and resources to those in need. Decking the halls – decorating our tree and mantle. Gift giving (and getting, let’s be real.) There are few things I love more than playing “Santa”! I make my list and I check it twice. Finding the perfect stocking stuffers is one of my favorite holiday tasks. I put together this list of 10 of the best (and cheap) stockings stuffers for kids, ages 4 through 6.
1. ZURU Tangle – I recently shared this fun toy we found at Walmart on Instagram. I’ll be throwing another one of these in Benjamin’s stocking! He loves to attach them together, making patterns and different designs. They come in a variety of colors and styles, including Classic, Crazy, Metallic, and Sparkle.
2. Usborne Sticker Books – We L-O-V-E, love Usborne books. Benjamin uses the Wipe-Clean series nearly everyday for homeschool. There are so many amazing series’, that’s it easy to find new books to give as Christmas and birthday gifts. Last Christmas I gave my youngest nephews and family friends, The Big Book of Colors, which is just about the cutest, most colorful book there is. In addition to sticker books, here are more stocking suffer ideas, many of which are also under $10!
4. Crayola Mini Washable Glitter Glue – Most kids love glitter, but I don’t know a whole lot of mamas who want to bust it out all over the dining table. These glitter glues keep things slightly more contained. Plus, they’re mini and everything mini is cute.
5. Toysmith Rainbow Stunt Streamer – I used to nanny quite a few little girls who loved these! I can’t think of a boy who wouldn’t love them too. They bring the same joy as sparklers, with the added bonus of not setting the house on fire. Win.
6. Pocket Etch A Sketch – Throw back! Every kid should own one of these at some point in their lives. This is perfect to keep in the car for long car rides or to take with you when you travel over the holidays.
7. Kangaroo Marble Set – If you’ve got babies in the house, then this is obviously not the best idea for now. Benjamin has a set of marbles that he loves! He plays all sorts of games with them and we also use them for math fun.
8. 4M Kidz Labs Moon Torch Kit – Don’t you remember the joy you had when your mom let you put those glow-in-the-dark stars all over your ceiling as a kid? All that putty that ended up dying the paint… but I digress. This moontorch works on walls and ceilings at night (or in a dark room), giving glimpses of the moon… without the mess.
9. Toysmith 41-Piece Pick-Up Sticks Game – Another fun throwback game, and in a cute wooden box!
10. Melissa & Doug Family Dinner Box of Questions Game – I really love this idea!! We’re big into games over here, and I love the idea of having a box of prompts to help facilitate thought-provoking conversation with our little one.
