Stockings may just be my favorite thing about Christmas morning and no matter what your traditions are they usually revolve around the stockings being a group event! Growing up we always saved them for last so maybe because of that I have a “save the best for last” mentality when it comes to stuffing stockings. At the end of the day I let Santa fill up my kids’ stockings but it wouldnt hurt to share some fun creative stocking stuffer ideas with you all anyways! Hey, maybe even the big guy himself  is reading (Hi, Santa!)

We have our fair share of candy and treats in our house but I don’t personally like finding candy in stockings (or at least an overkill of it) so here is what I have found that would be perfect for filling any stocking for a (good) boy or girl this Christmas! Because, you know the bad ones are getting coal!

I love open-ended and timeless gifts that really play on a child’s imagination so you will find a lot of crafts in our house which seems to be a trend here as well:

  1. ZDough Scented Play Dough: I seriously wish you all could SMELL THESE through the computer….I’m not going to lie, these are getting opened way sooner than I anticipated because they are pure addictive. They smell like all things Christmas and I love them! They are festive in color and have “Merry Christmas” stamped on the top. I’m torn between not wanting to ruin their beauty and eager to dig in! These would so perfect for stockings and they’re something that your child can truly get creative with!creative stocking stuffers, stocking stuffers for kids, stockings, items for stockings, gifts for kids, Montessori gifts
  2. Colour + Create Coloring Book: Sticking with the creative theme we love a good coloring book around here. As montessori kids my children are used to self-lead learning (meaning things that don’t require an adult to supervise) so these little coloring books offer fun and education that the child can interact with alone. Each page has a letter, an object that corresponds with it then an area to practice writing their own words that start with that letter. The repetition is key as is the pictures/example word too! All in all I really love having these types of coloring/work books available for my girls and they love them just as much!          
  3. Montessori Cards + Counters: These are considered an intro to math in the montessori world but my girls just think they’re a fun game that they LOVE. These cards and counters allow the child to first place out all the wooden card numbers in order (learning number sequences) then it’s time to count! The red counters all represent “one unit” and allows the child to feel each unit as they count. At the end if there are any units left the child knows to go back and check their work! 
  4.  Cuddle + Kind: Every little one loves a good toy to cuddle but when you purchase from this brand you’re buying more than just a plush doll (which my children are beyond obsessed with). You’re also providing 10 meals to children in need with the purchase of just ONE plush! We have been LONG time fans of this brand and the love just keeps on growing. These make the perfect little addition to any stocking! 
  5. For the tech lovers: Shopping for little ones is nice because you can get them stuff they need but present it in a way that they will love. These amazing headphones from Lil’ Gadgets are a MUST HAVE for kids but really it’s something every parent can appreciate (you know, not having to listen to Daniel Tiger on the iPad!) There are a couple options including these LilGadgets Untangled Pro
    bluetooth headphones which is what I got here for the girls! I also got the LilGadgets Connect in black for the boys to use soon too! I am such a huge fan of this brand and the quality can’t be beat! Also check out the amazing LilGadgets CarBuddy Universal Headrest Tablet Mount  to turn any smart device into a traveling TV! creative stocking stuffers, stocking stuffers for kids, stockings, items for stockings, gifts for kids, Montessori gifts creative stocking stuffers, stocking stuffers for kids, stockings, items for stockings, gifts for kids, Montessori gifts

  • Florida can’t seem to make up it’s mind with our weather and we keep getting little cold fronts down here! BUT, thankfully @rei has me covered with this lightweight - Trailsmith Anorak keeping me warm and providing me all the pockets 👏🏼 I’m sharing a few of my favorite spring finds from REI #ontheblog now! You know where to find the link ✨ #ad #rei #springfashionfinds
  • I just had to share these adorable captures from last night ✨ This really was such a sweet show and the cast was so nice too! Highly recommend it when it comes to your area! Thank you again @atthecapitol for having us 💕 #americangirllive
  • We really are stretching our girls’ trips these days but how could we say no to a night being hosted at @atthecapitol seeing the American Girl Live show?! #amiright 🤷🏻‍♀️🎉 We had such a blast and I shared a bunch of our night over on their insta so make sure to check it out! ✨ Double tap if you’re little one loves American Girl! If so, you have to see this show when it comes to your town! 💕#americangirl #americangirllive #aglive #americangirltour #capitoltheatre #atthecap #captakeover
  • These boys are still taking 2 naps a day and I’m not sure I ever want to give up these post nap mid-morning smiles ✨ Do I have to? 🤣 When did your little ones transition to 1 nap? #morningnap #twins
  • This photo perfectly sums up this afternoon- just a mess 🤣 1 dressed up mama, 1 kid missing (she’s back there somewhere), 1 kid screaming, 1 kid fake smiling and 1 tired teething toddler 🤦🏻‍♀️ BUT I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with another local news station today (with @aubreyonair who was SO amazing!) for another spotlight and let’s just say this is as real as it’s going to get when it comes to this crazy crew. I can’t wait to share it with you all! Stay tuned ✨ #mamastired #localnews
  • As we wait for our home to be completed (I can taste it it’s so near!) I think back to our last master suite and the one thing I’m missing most is our own bed. There is nothing like climbing into a cloud after a longggg day chasing all the tiny humans and we got that with our @tempurpedic mattress 😴 For the last 8 years that bed has been the place I find comfort in every night and I am so excited to have upgraded our old Tempurpedic mattress to the new TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt for the new house! I’m counting down the sleeps until we get to have our Tempur-Pedic back! Even better with their all new technology and pressure reliving power right were we need it to help rejuvenate us for another full day of parenting 👏🏼 #AD #luxeadapt #tempurpedic
