Castle Themed Holiday Stockings with iColor3D

November 22, 2010 at 7:49 pm | Posted in Blog | Leave a comment

Instead of just filling your son or daughter’s stocking with candy and random trinkets, why not go for a creative, themed stocking this year? We think a “Castle” or a Princess/Knight motif is a really fun idea that offers up lots of options! This stocking will be a particularly huge hit if your kids are going through a medieval stage and can’t get enough of dragons, fairies and unicorns.

The first item in your fantasy themed stocking should be a DVD you think your child would like. Barbie has a lot of great movies that tie in with this theme; we recommend “Barbie and the Diamond Castle” or “Barbie and the Twelve Dancing Princesses.” There are tons of options for little boys as well, classics like Disney’s “The Sword and the Stone” or “Shrek” work well, but we think “How to Train Your Dragon 3D” is the perfect choice!

An obvious addition to this stocking is a crown. Your kids will love wearing a crown while they watch the DVD you picked for them. Moms on a budget can easily find kid-sized crowns at any local dollar store, party supply store, or craft store. Along with the crown, a wand is a fun addition. Little girls will enjoy a sparkly princess fairy wand and boys will love pretending they are Harry Potter with a wizard wand! These can also be purchased at a craft or party supply store.

It is important to give your child some intellectually stimulating presents as well, so we suggest an iColor3D coloring book and a set of Legos! iColor3D books are a fun, fresh take on coloring that are great for kids of all ages.  We of course recommend the Castle themed book; your kids will have a blast coloring 3D dragons, knights and princesses. You can keep that creativity flowing by giving a mini set of castle themed Legos. There are many different options available at your local toy stores, including Harry Potter sets and Pink Princess sets.

Now that you have a few main castle themed gifts in the stocking, you can pretty much add any little knick-knacks you like! Silly Bandz are very popular right now and there are a few castle packs that work perfectly. Things like stickers, toothbrushes, and fun pencils will be the perfect finishing touches.

And just like that you have put together an entertaining and educational Castle themed stocking! These gifts are sure to please, and your little princes and princesses will be absolutely thrilled on Christmas morning!
