I don’t know about you, but I love opening stocking stuffers, but find it to be so hard to buy them – especially when it comes to H.
He’s too young for candy or chocolate, he can’t have anything that is too small (for fear of it being a choking hazard), and big toys don’t fit in his stocking, so they’re technically not a stocking stuffer. So with a lot of thought, here are some ideas I came up with for H.
Puffs – these are like candy for babies, H eats them up every time.
LeapFrog LeapReader Junior - H actually already has this, but loves it and it’s such a great tool to help little ones read.
Small books – buy books to go with the LeapFrog LeapReader Junior or board books. Better yet, make a photo book at Pinhole Press for your little one.
DVD – that is if you allow your child to watch TV or movies at this stage in the game.
Toy cars – H loves this Go Car, and it’s nice and easy to push around on any surface.
Crayons and coloring books – any and all. Find coloring books that suit your child’s interests and for the crayons, JUMBO is key for small fingers.
Finger paint, art smock, and paper – I went with Crayola because it’s washable and inexpensive.
Flash cards - I love these animal cards from the Etsy.com shop Saffles. They’re a downloadable file so you have to print them yourself, but they’re so cute and you get the files right away.
Bubbles – any kind of bubbles, a bubble gun or buy different wants to make it more interesting.
