(Bonus if you live in Fairbanks/Anchorage I bought pretty everything locally: Check out Enchanted Forest Toys for Fairbanks or Over the Rainbow if you're in the Anchorage area. Both of these will ship so check 'em out.)
Okay lets get started shall we... a sneak peek at my kids yule loot.
A pretty rocking wooden castle with stairs and a bell. Wooden dragon, a farmer & his wife. Also a really really really cool hearth with cauldron. (Can you tell that one might be my favorite?)
Hoop painting kit, a purple Sarah's Silk, a game of pick up sticks, and a story telling game.
Sewing kit, Harp with music inside, build your own wooden construction truck, Geo gear blocks, and this magnetic 'drawing' tablet.
Stocking Stuffers phase one: a foldable block dragon.
A paper fan, & wooden cow that is a music shaker.
Stocking Stuffers phase two: Don't disregard Micheal's and Targets dollar sections. They are a fantastic for inexpensive little stuffers. None of these cost more then $5.
Also Just because it's old to you doesn't mean it can't be new for them. I recently went through boxes of my childhood things and picked out these books that I thought my own children would love. Now they get a whole new life and the kids get another thing to get to rip the wrapping off of.
Happy Yule / Hanukkah / Kwanzaa / Christmas / Hijri !!!
