I love stocking stuffers. Small gifts that fit into Christmas stockings or simply small gifts that are suitable for giving to friends (or children of friends). I love giving gifts that children will actually use. I love giving small art and craft materials, toys and tools for the garden or kitchen, that are scientific or teach the child about animals or the environment. Here is a selection of Montessori orientated stocking stuffers for toddlers to preschoolers!
My four year old (Otis) would go crazy for number 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 and 17 in particular. We have many of these and he loves number 14 and 27. Number 15 and 16 are huge favourites on our art shelves!
