With the holiday’s approaching, what better time to gift your kids with stocking stuffers to encourage them to spend more time outdoors? If your family gives gifts to one another, give a gift that will let them love and interact with Mother Nature as well.
How many times have you bought your children stocking stuffers that just…were “things”? So many times, many of those “thoughtful” gifts that we give really aren’t all that thoughtful at all. Do we really need more stuff just sitting around the inside of our home?
What if there was a way to give your children stocking stuffers to actually encourage them to spend more time outdoors? This holiday season, make it happen!

What child can deny the love of playing with a magnetic flashlight? Not only is it a great way to see in the dark, but it can literally provide hours and hours of play. Shadow puppets, anyone?
Let your child explore the outside world with this durable and waterproof headlamp! It’s great for cave exploration, late night bike riding, or even just to wear when snuggled up reading in a tent!
Marshmallow Roasting Sticks
Is it even considered camping if marshmallows aren’t involved? Truth be told, everyone should have their own dedicated marshmallow roasting stick which is what makes this stocking stuffer gift so perfect.
Sports Glider Kite
There’s just something so peaceful and tranquil about flying a kite outdoors. If you have the wind, and the perfect kite you and your littles could spend the day out enjoying the beauty of the Earth.
Reading…Aim…and Fire! At a safe target, of course! Show your kids how to be safe with a slingshot and set up some easy targets for them outside. Shooting at empty cans is a great way to be outdoors and work on hand-eye coordination as well.
Bird Watching Binoculars
Have you ever sat outside and watched the birds fly around your house? There are literally hundreds of varieties of birds to explore and learn about with your children. These binoculars are a great stocking stuffer for countless hours of education.

The beauty of nature has a way of creating bonding moments and family memories that will last a lifetime, and the addition of these fun and engaging stockings stuffers are the perfect way addition to help your family get outside!
