#AD 14 Fab Educational Stocking Stuffer Ideas! Can You Suggest More?

Kawartha Lakes Mums Asks -What Educational Stocking Stuffer Ideas Do You Have? 

Does your family have a trdition of stuffing stockings? Do you have a specific way of layering the treats? Our family stockings usually had the following layers:

  • Orange in the toe
  • Nuts
  • Huge Apple
  • Candies
  • Small Gift to keep us busy
  • More Candies
  • Gifts that define the recipient peeking out the top ie - personalized with their name
We were always allowed to open our stockings Christmas morning, but had to wait until our parents got up to open presents, so at least one of the small presents was something that would keep us busy.
