Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Toddlers

I love stockings!  My mom used to do an amazing job of stuffing ours right full and it was always great fun to unwrap all the small treasures Christmas morning.  Now that I have my own kids, I tend to go a little overboard buying small items here and there to fill the stockings.

My 3 year old son’s stocking this year will contain:
