Stocking Stuffers for Preschoolers

Stocking Stuffers for Preschoolers

For the most part there are tons of excellent Christmas gifts for preschool aged children, but what about stocking stuffers? Here are a few ideas:
* Keep your preschooler entertained with videos, CDS, CD-Roms or DVDs. Most of their favorite shows are now available.
* Offer them action figures, a hand puppet, crayons, coloring books or Lego sets that will keep them busy.
* Give your kid a sense of safety with a cool night-light or a flashlight.
* Stuff their stockings with challenging puzzles or educational card games.
* Drop in a few fun things: a Pez dispenser, bubbles, stickers, finger paints or small cans of Play-Doh.
* Throw in a "license plate" with your child's name on it for the tricycle.
(BOLD)Tips & Warnings
Including a special ornament for the tree (perhaps with your child's name and the date inscribed) in the stocking every year is a nice tradition--when your child grows up, he or she will have a lifelong collection of ornaments.
