My favorite part of Christmas gift giving (and receiving) are the stockings! All those sweet little gifts overflowing from foot-shaped sacks? What could be cuter!? And I love, absolutely LOVE the “hunt” to find adorable surprises to wrap up for everyone’s stocking! Fill the stockings with these exciting stocking stuffer ideas for kids!
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids
OOLY Crafts and Art Supplies
I love the fresh take on art, drawing, and crafting that OOLY takes. With their collections of stickers, pens, markers, notebooks, and other art and drawing supplies, kids will be inspired for days! Stuff their stocking with adorable “kits” like Happy Packs. A pouch with stickers, sticky tabs, and a glitter wand pen! Perfect for the budding writer or artist! And OOLY has a variety of Happy Pack sets. They also make a great stand-alone gift idea.
Scented puzzle eraser packs are a hit for kids. Try Scented Unicorn Donuts or Icy Pops. The erasers come in a nifty giftable box, and kids can pull them apart and put them back together as they draw and play at the same time!
Scratch & Scribble Mini Packs fit nicely in the stocking, or for that car ride to family dinners! It’s a treat for kids to scratch away and discover the picture and colors underneath!
OOLY has tons more ideas for stocking stuffers that range from about $3-15 to fit any budget. Check out all their creative stocking stuffer picks!
TINY Toy Sets – little toys with BIG impact
I love anything in miniature. And so do kids! That’s why these tiny sets from Smart Lab Toys will delight your kiddos.
- TINY Robots! has 15 designs to build by mixing and matching arms, legs, wheels, and gears. Kids will learn about different types of robots, and the basics of mechanical engineering and robotics. The gearbox is transparent so kids can see their robot at work, and it doubles as a carry case!
- TINY Baking! includes miniature tools and recipes to make teeny edible treats! Yes, even the recipes are tiny to make just a small portion! Cooking also gives kids valuable science, measuring, and experimental skills.
- TINY Science! is a little working lab that includes precision instruments like a funnel, petri dish, flask and more. The diminutive lab cabinet is an adorable way to store on-the-go science!
InRoad Toys Play Tape
Tape that is printed to look like roads. Genius! Kids can instantly create roads or train tracks for toy vehicle play. Sticks to any flat surface, is easy to tear, and peels off with no residue, and you can reapply! Perfect traveling toy! As they say, “The possibilities are as endless as a desert highway!” InRoad Toys PlayTape is 100% Made in the USA.
eeBoo Crafts and Games
I love this brand’s unique arts and crafts materials. Tuck some of their brilliantly colored PomPom Kits or Pipe Cleaner kits and let kids create and innovate. Project ideas include a huge range of animal figures you can build with the materials. Make a chameleon out of pom poms, or a goldfish out of pipe cleaners. Camels, Dragons, Dart Frog, Canary, Flamingo, Sea Horse, Chipmunk… if your child has a highly specialized favorite animal, I am betting you’ll find a cool craft kit featuring it at eeBoo!
The colored pencil selection alone will astound you: they’ve got fluorescents and metallics in cool themes like Robots and Owls, and Mixies: dual color pencils that change color as you write! (Psst! eeBoo pencils and crayons are perfect for people who love those grown-up coloring books!).
Leafcutter Designs Toys
I already shared the adorable Tiny Mail Kit with you, but Leafcutter has so much more to offer! Like Seed Money – adorable paper money pieces that contain seeds. This time, it’s okay to throw your money around – and grow a lovely garden of greens, root veggies, or wildflowers! This could be for kids, but I think gardeners would love it also! Seeds are organic and/or heirloom and printing is plant-based so it’s perfectly safe to consume the edibles! These will be so much fun to share around (leave along with your tip, plant a secret garden!).
- Pennies = delicate wildflowers
- Nickels = spritely herbs
- Dimes = crunchy root crops
- Quarters = crispy fresh salad greens
Check out their Trade Tokens – a reminder that the best things in life are free. Well, with just a little time and thought involved. Crafted from solid American maple wood, they are stamped by hand in the US. Archival black ink means they’ll last forever. Use and reuse – it’s like a wooden coupon!! Not just for stocking stuffers – these are great to include in shower gifts, to cheer up a friend, or use as a party favor or reward for kids!
Stickers make great stocking stuffer ideas for kids!
Peaceable Kingdom – stickers and games
What child doesn’t love to play and decorate with stickers? Choose from glow-in-the-dark, temporary tattoos, scratch ‘n sniff, and Flicker stickers (lenticular) in a variety of designs. Peaceable Kingdom stickers are printed on high quality materials with vivid colors. Also, the vinyl reusable sticker play kits let you play again and again! Find stickers and games for stocking stuffers at PeaceableKingdom.com.
Lovable Labels – personalized name stickers

- Stocking Stuffers packs give you 3 sets of stickers. Each set includes 6 Multi-purpose Sticker Labels, 8 Press N’ Stick Clothing DOTS, 1 set of Shoe Labels and 1 Mini Metal Tag.
