Best Advent Calendar surprises and Stocking stuffers

We are almost at the end of November and it is time to start thinking about Christmas, one of my favorite periods of the year.

My kids are already counting the days for opening a new window (or little package) of our Advent Calendar and I have started to collect the little presents that they will find there. 

Come and discover my proposals, all under 10 € . Maybe you can even let yours in the comments section, so every kid will have a great surprise every morning.

Card games are the best way to move them away from computers and tele. We love something that can sit all the family together around a table and this Battle game by Djeco promises many funny afternoons.

We love dinosaurs and the bigger the better, as this Inflatable T-Rex

A set of Magic pens by OMY.  Children can draw amazing stories with these felt pens, changing o erasing part of the colors with the white pens.

And what best way to use the pens than in this huge Paris colouring poster

We love crafts and this Djeco Mosaic looks perfect for changing a boring afternoon into something else. I also like the Djeco scratch board , they are quite relaxing but I also think that it has to be kind of magical to discover what  lives beneath.

This birds Brikkon set looks amazing. With this basic set of plywood legs that fit lego pieces, my children can create their own birds. 

A wooden Yo-Yo is always the perfect toy. This is from Nobodinoz and it is in my favorite color.

If you have girls at home, I am sure any nail polish or make up product will delight them. I go for this glitter peach by NailmaticKids. 

I also like this kit for creating their own jewels made from paper: Paper beads by OMY 

A golden headband from Numero 74 or the Meri Meri start hair grips seems like a perfect match.

Logic games are other of my favorite stuffers. They are perfect games for one that we bring when we travel, eat out or stay at home. 

The IQ Puzzler Pro with 120 challenges where you have to combine the pieces to form the shapes in the template, the Flex Puzzler, a 3d jigsaw with 80 different challengues , the treasure map by Brains or even a montrous memory game

But it is also fun to play in groups. I think with Bandido from Helvetiq, everyone will work together to prevent the thief from escaping.

Dobble will increase their attention and reflexes, while they try to find the same simbol in every card.

  We can play Bingo with the HABA version or imitate animals or crazy things with Mimica

And last by not least we can explore the world with this inflatable globe , create our own constellations with 4M phosphorescent stickers, investigate the animals in the nearest forest with a Nature Detective kit, or create our own secret tattoos

The list is endless: you can add a lego toy or Plus-Plus mini pieces (another favorite). Books are always a good alternative, and also some chocolates or healthy scnacks or fruits.

And do not forget to include some experiences: a movie with popcorn, a visit to the zoo, an adventure in the forest, manicure for two, baking a chocholate cake, building a fortress with pillows.. I am sure your kids would love them more than many of the other toys we have suggested.

And you, do you have any other ideas? Could you recommend us something else? We would love to read about it
