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 fun stocking stuffers under $10 for young kids ages 4 to 6 years old.

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.
If you’ve got a nature-lover like me, they’ll definitely love a pair of binoculars! These are a fun starter pair, but if you’re ready to upgrade to a slightly more expensive pair, check out our Nature Day post for what Benjamin uses and more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 moon torch works on walls and ceilings at night (or in a dark room), giving glimpses of the moon… without the mess.
I loved stickers as a kid! These books are fun and interactive.
Another fun throwback game, and in a cute wooden box! We love playing this game together.
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. Looking for more gift ideas for your own little gamer? Here are 5 must-have board games for preschoolers.
