Stuffing the Stocking with a Novelty Idea

I love it sometimes when gifts hearken back to simpler days.  Here’s a stocking stuffer, that would be a great toy for a child (or a grown-up) to remind them that not all toys beep, blink, require batteries or a plug or interact with you.

Yet—it still teaches plenty of eye-hand coordination!

During my stocking stuffer search I was introduced to these darling, handmade and woodburnt yo-yos from The Woody Nook.  The one I saw was on sale for only $6.00 which should seem like a steal considering the price of video games today.

I know my students first encountered them on a field trip recently, and it was amazingly funny to watch how enthralled with yo-yo’s they were.
