100 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids

My girls & I put together this list of 100 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids.

It can be tricky to come up with some stocking stuffer ideas for kids that are new and exciting. We like for our stocking stuffers to have good reason to stick around past the new year whenever possible, and to actually bring some fun and joy to the receiver.

100 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids


This year I did some brainstorming with my kids and we came up with the ultimate list of 100 kid-approved stocking stuffer ideas... let's get to the list!

Soft Sour Cream Cookies

Soft Sour Cream Cookies... yep, the secret to those soft sugar cookies you can get in store bakeries is sour cream!  Did you know this?  

Well I'm about to share the recipe, so you can give it a try yourself! ;)  Aren't these snowflake cookies adorable?

I originally shared this post on the blog a few years ago, but I thought it was time to bring these sour cream sugar cookies to the forefront again!


I'm using Gay Lea's Premium Sour Cream (which is their thickest, richest sour cream made with 3 simple ingredients.  It's amazing with chips (if you're like me ;) or to use to make a flavoured dip, and it's awesome in baking!  This sour cream is only available in Ontario and only in the 425ml size.

Now, let me share this recipe with you!

"We Love You" Jar

This Fall-themed "We Love You" Jar fits right in with the coming season, but it could of course be altered slightly to work for any time of the year. 

A few years ago when our friend Charity had a birthday during October, we left her a little surprise on her doorstep. We gave her some Pumpkin Spice candies and wanted to do something a little more personal than just candies, so we came up with this personalized "We Love You" Jar:

Popsicle Stick PomPom Spider Craft

We made this cute popsicle stick spider craft a few years ago and they were so cute & can be used in so many different ways that I wanted to re-share this post with you now that we're into October!  I hope you're all having some fun preparing for Halloween!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are in Halloween craft mode over here! Earlier this week it was a spider treat and today it's a simple spider craft. These would be fun to hang with fishpoping wire, just about anywhere, to give a creepy (yet cute) vibe. :)

Apple Shaped Oreo Cheesecake Truffles

With Fall around the corner, it felt like the right time to share these Apple Shaped Oreo Cheesecake Truffles! I have a recipe for you, but don't feel you have to make them look like apples- they're good with any coloured coating, fancy-looking or not!

It's been nearly 10 years since I threw my sister a School Themed bridal shower, and made these Oreo cheesecake truffles, dressed up to look like apples! They were so cute and it's time to revisit that recipe!

Apple Shaped Oreo Cheesecake Truffles
My mom & I worked together on these with a recipe from a friend of ours that is so simple & so delicious! Want to try them? I thought so! ;)
