Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers for Kids

It’s only 2 weeks to go until the big day – and those Christmas preparations are in full swing! Presents have been bought, the tree is up, the turkey is ordered and now it’s down to sorting out those finishing touches. But while the presents for under the tree may have been bought, what about stocking fillers? It was an orange and a pack of knickers when I was little, but I think my five year old would think Father Christmas had lost it if he was leaving fruit and underwear in her stocking! So instead he will be leaving a few little toys, bubbles, and some chocolate coins. If you are still looking for some inspiration, here’s a roundup of some small gifts that would be perfect to find in those stockings on Christmas morning.

How to Make Lego Minifigure Crayons and Chocolates

Izzy is a big fan of Lego and has been helping me come up with ideas for a potentially Lego themed birthday party – it’s still 4 months until she turns 5 but its never too early to start planning! So I ordered some Lego themed silicone ice cube moulds and this week we have used the minifigure mould to make chocolates and crayons. I’m still waiting for the brick mould to arrive but can’t wait to try that one out too.
