Why not get crafty when choosing stocking stuffers for kids? Place a fern, a flower, a leaf or anything, really, on the SunPrint paper and set it in the sun. After you rinse the paper in water, a beautiful image will appear, just like film development. Think of all the prints your budding artist can make!

Dr. Seuss's An Amazing Alphabet Book
Arguably the most important subject of all time (the ABCs) meets arguably the most important children's book author of all time (Seuss himself!) for a little board book your kid will enjoy reading cover to cover, over and over. The silly doctor's zany writing style makes the letters come to life, from Aunt Annie's Aligator to Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz and everything between. One of our favorite stocking stuffers for toddlers.

Changeable Silly Putty
It's true — Silly Putty is still around and it's as entertaining as ever. This kind changes colors with the warmth of your hands, so the fun lasts even longer. We think it's one of the most classic and cheap stocking stuffers for kids.

Magic Milk Straws
Normally kids wouldn't go crazy over milk, but we bet these magic straws will get them sipping. They're filled with flavor pellets that turn a regular glass of milk into a fun treat. (One of the best stocking stuffers if Santa didn't finish his own glass of milk.)
