The boys in my house are the hardest people on my list to find stocking stuffers for. My preschooler always gets Hot Wheels cars because he’s obsessed and he is going to go bananas when he sees this road Playtape to go with it this year. We used to have a rug on it with roads that was ruined in the flood. This tape comes in two sizes as well as blue and orange – to match Hot Wheels tracks. So he can make his own tracks wherever he wants! It’s a paper tape – like for marking off walls for painting – so it comes off easily from walls and carpets without damaging surfaces.
Available at Amazon starting at $9
My girls are obsessed with painting their nails. These year they will be getting Piggy Paints in their stockings. Piggy Paint is a natural, Eco-friendly, hypoallergenic nail polish line for girls. Lots of Lake County Boutiques carry it, you can even find it in some Target and Wal-mart stores. The nail stickers are an added bonus for the bigger girl, her tiny fingers need smaller stickers!
