Halloween is over, so you know what that means…. Christmas! Oh yeah, thanksgiving too, but according to all the stores, it’s Christmas season already. So why not hop on here and list some amazing super cute stocking stuffer ideas! And most of these are simple DIY gifts!
1. Christmas Tree Crayons
Put all those old broken crayons to good use. The kids will think these are super cool! Find the full tutorial here by Functional Rustic.
2. Felt Snowman Puzzle
Keep your kids entertained , you could even make several different eye colors, buttons, scarves etc so they can switch it up every time! This cute craft was found at Mommy Savers. And the possibilities are endless. You could make a puzzle for every season, you could make Santa, a nativity scene, an angel, or even a paper doll.
3. Personal Cold/Heat Packs
Okay so what’s so special about this? One would think it’s kinda boring. But I bought my son a Spider-Man cherry pit pack at a holiday market and everyone has used it!! Until we accidentally left it outside one day and it rained and it got ruined 😭. Looks like I need to find some of these! You can easily make these yourself by sewing in whatever shape you like, adding cherry pits, jasmine rice, or dried corn, but if you aren’t that crafty, you’re guaranteed to find these are a local craft event or on Etsy.
4. DIY Rock Tic Tac Toe
So this is the cutest right?? My son loves tic tac toe! So I think I’ll definitely be adding this to his stocking. And fun thing is, you can make a variety of “teams”. Make it Christmas themed, their favorite characters, or just their favorite colors ! Jack o lanterns vs candy skulls, Mario vs Bowzer, Olaf VBS the sun, Batman vs joker, Cookie Monster vs cookies! I mean so many options! You can buy this set on Etsy at Rockthiswaystore.
