Great stocking stuffer ideas for kids that they will love to find in their stockings. Joke books, silly toys, small games, art supplies and more!

Updated October 2021

We’re sharing some of our favorite fun stocking stuffer ideas for kids.

We don’t know about you, but we start keeping an eye out for good ideas early and squirreling away Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers as early as November. Sometimes earlier.

We’ve also been known to wait until the very last minute, too, but hey –– we’ve all been there.

For kids’ stockings, we like to include a mix of useful and fun gifts, Christmas candy, and art supplies.

Here are some extra-fun ideas we think your kids will love!

If you don’t live in a snowy area, pretend snow can be so much fun! (We have a post about it here if you want to learn more.)

4. Mini Animal Toys

A tube of arctic animals is perfect to go along with your fake snow! Or, if you’d prefer a warmer climate, there are tons to choose from.

6. Finger Puppets

Puppets inspire super fun storytelling for everyone! You can get this set of animal puppets, or a set from your child’s favorite show.

7. Stickers

We love these animal sticker books, but any stickers you think your child would enjoy are great. These reusable sticker sets are also lots of fun, and can be used over and over.

8. A small game

Games are always fun and these ones are just the right size to fit in a stocking. A card game such as Go Fish or Crazy Eights for younger kids. Or Five Crowns or Wizard for older kids. Or you can try Spot It! There are so many versions of this hit game now.
