Christmas is almost here! I am so excited but there’s still so much to do! What about you?
Last time I shared with you my 2016 Holiday Gift Ideas for boys 5-8 years old and mentioned how I help my children pick toys that are both fun and educational at the same time. Be sure to check it out if you are still in need of some gift ideas for your boys.
Picking things to put in our children’s stockings is another area I want to make sure I am making the most of. It’s so easy to just grab whatever knick knacks just to “stuff” their stockings full of things to make it look fun and exciting. But just like deciding on what to buy our kids for their Christmas presents, I like to pick things that will be fun and useful at the same time. And if I am lucky maybe something unique to put in their stockings.
Have you been or heard of Mastermind Toys? Wow! It’s an amazing store with over 10,000 selection of unique, fun and educational learning toys and books for your kiddos! They have 40+ different stores across Canada and growing! And they also have an online store which is always a great option for shopping especially during this busy holiday season. Not that I’m advertising for them, I just happened to remember being in one of these stores before and thought I had to check them out some more. So I looked them up online while searching for some fun and unique ideas for our stocking stuffer and discovered all the fun stuff that they have to offer. Which brings me down to all these goodies I found from their store and thought I’d share them with you!
Almost all of these things can be purchased from their store for under $10. But if it seems a little much for your budget, maybe pick just a couple of things then add some of their favorite treats in it. It may not be a stocking overflowing with just “stuff”, instead your kids will have a stocking filled with something unique, useful and fun items to enjoy.
