The best Christmas stocking filler idea for the kids

When it comes to kids, often it’s the little things they love the most.

A holiday gift jar filled with tiny presents will give them hours of fun throughout the summer. Look for a jar with a wide top (we got ours from Kmart) then get collecting. Keep an eye out in the supermarket, $2 shop, toy store and op-shop and build up a treasure trove of intriguing treats. If you have time, wrap up a few items for an extra boost of anticipation.

Filler ideas:

+ Bouncy balls
+ Packs of cards
+ Mini board games
+ Pick-up sticks
+ Marbles
+ Parachute men
+ Dice
+ A Slinky
+ Wrapped sweets
+ A key ring
+ Socks
+ Stickers
+ Slime
+ Glitter pens
+ Scented felt-tips and fancy pencils
