Whether you’re an uncle, aunt, grandmother, grandfather or even a parent, buying gifts for the little ones can be tough. We all know that the festive season can be pricey — travelling, activities, Christmas lunch, gifts, wrapping paper… the list goes on, but your wallet does not. The children don’t understand this though. They want as many gifts as possible and you want to give it to them to see their excited little faces and hear their exhilarated giggles chiming throughout the house. So we have compiled a list of stocking fillers for kids that will fill them with joy and be easy on your wallet.

Slime

Every kid loves squishy and colourful slime. Heck, even we do! But why? Well, because it feels good!

Slime is available in several assortments, such as rainbow slime, unicorn slime and galaxy slime. You can even get the kids their very own slime lab available in small and large.

Finger Paint

For children who are too young to use a paintbrush but still enjoy the fun and mess involved with creating an artistic masterpiece, finger paint is the perfect gift.

Beyers Animal Droppings

Kids always seem to find themselves playing with something “gross” or “dirty”. Parents, you know what we mean – them picking up things they shouldn’t be. But there’s one “gross” thing that’s acceptable – ‘animal droppings’, and not just any animal droppings – Beyers Chocolate Animal Droppings. Not only will it make them laugh but they make the perfect milk-chocolaty treat. It’s just chocolate coated shortbread, peanuts or almonds available in various animal dropping flavours – giraffe, buck and zebra. Beyers Animal Droppings are available at Dis-chem.

Beach Balls

For some more fun in the sun, a beach or pool volley ball is perfect. All you need for this is some family and friends, a beach, garden or pool and, of course, the ball. Blow up the beach ball, divide into teams and let the fun commence. Just remember the sunscreen! Beach balls are available in various sizes from small to jumbo at The Crazy Store.
