    so great! i was just thinking about stocking stuffers the other day for the kids. i love that this list is a mix of just-for-fun stuff and we’ll-actually-use-it stuff.

    We were talking about this at homeschool group a few weeks ago. Best ideas I heard were flashlights, mini microscopes, tape measures and walkie talkies– we’re doing the walkie talkies for our 8 & 4 year olds. Then maybe they’ll give me back the baby monitor parts!

      Bahaha! This made be chuckle :) I did just pick up a magnifying glass for Max and I know Jem would like a tape measure – she’s always talking about how many feet people are.

    Such a great list!! Those Baby lit books were on super sale and my dad bought 10 for my girls!! We do an orange, socks, lip balm (among other fun amenity things), and Paleo friendly snacks I can find.
