Sam and Syd are 2.5 and 3.5 now. Syd in particular is showing a real interest in Christmas this year. I have decided to do them a stocking each, which will hopefully keep Syd entertained enough to wait until after breakfast before opening the rest of her presents. (Sam’s autism means he gets upset if we don’t stick to his routine, so breakfast before presents is a must in our house).
I thought I’d do a quick blog post to show you what’s inside their stockings, and to hopefully share some ideas for yours….
CHOCOLATE – It’s just not Christmas without Chocolate, is
it?! I’ve got some Kinder Eggs, as well as small Thorntons Snowman and Snowdog models. Sam probably won’t eat his, but I’m pretty sure it’s
compulsory to at least offer your kids chocolate for breakfast on
Diecast Cars – Most supermarkets sell these. I have picked
them up in Asda and Tesco, amongst other places in the past. They
usually retail at £1 each, but the Tesco £1.50 ones are hot wheels
Bubbles – I am yet to meet a pre schooler who doesn’t like bubbles! Make sure it’s well sealed, though!
Tangerines – My Parents always told me they got these in their
stockings, so I am going to rekindle the tradition. (OK, OK – Sam loves
them, and he won’t touch chocolate, so this is a sweet treat for him mostly)!
Half Shell Heroes – We were recently sent 2 Half Shell Heroes
figures to share with our readers – they are super cute, and Syd loved them. The 2 packs
are £7.99 each.
(Check out their Advent Calendar for your chance to win half shell
Raisins – Both Sam and Syd love raisins, so I will be popping a couple of boxes into their stockings to keep them going. I expect Sam will probably get more excited about these than anything else.
Play Doh Tubs – These retail at around £1 a tub, or you can buy a
value pack to reduce this cost even further. We did this as we use the tubs
for treats when Syd is in the good books.
Whoopie Cushion – I am hoping my two will find these hilarious. I’m undecided as to whether I should put these in their stockings or on their chairs. Thoughts please…?
I can’t wait to see what the kids make of their stockings. I hope this post has given you a few ideas…?
