5 Fun and Useful Stocking Stuffers for Kids

Every year my daughter asks for something specific from Santa but she is most excited to receive the surprise, however small, that will be in her stocking that she so lovingly hangs up near the fireplace.

Usually my husband makes a quick trip to the store to buy something for the stocking. In the past, we have been guilty of buying whatever we find on the dollar section on Target or similar. But that stuff does not get as much use as we would like. So here are some ideas for those in the same boat as us. How to get stocking stuffers that kids will be excited about and also put to good use!
