30+ No junk stocking stuffers for 3-5 year old girls under $5 that you can buy online! Make shopping easy and affordable this holiday season.
Back in October, I wrote a post about no junk Halloween favors to hand out at trunk to treats or class parties. It was pretty popular, mostly because I think parents are tired of finding tiny little trinket toys all over their house. You know, those things that get played with for 1 minute and then thrown on the ground as the kids move on to the next thing.
That got me thinking about Christmas and stockings. Stockings can easily become a breeding ground for junk if they become a last minute after thought. I wanted a big list of stocking stuffers for 3-5 year old girls that was under $5. Yes, I wanted inexpensive but not junk.
My last parameter was that I didn’t want a stocking full of candy. There will be candy in my soon to be 5 year old’s stocking (thanks Santa) but this list doesn’t include any food/candy. Only toys, accessories, crafts and essentials are included in this stocking stuffer list.

I have one kiddo that dislikes meal time and fun dinnerware can sometimes help that situation and encourage eating. These cute items are perfect stocking stuffers for 3-5 year old girls.
Zak! Frozen Divided Plate – This brand of kid plates is the very best in my opinion. I previously bought other brands and this is the only one that has stuck around for 4 + years. The colors stay vibrant and they don’t warp in the dishwasher.
Zak! Frozen Water Bottle – We can always use a new water bottle for lunch boxes or to take in the car. If you have a Frozen lover, check out this Ultimate Frozen Gift Guide.
Moana Silverware Set – Kid size silverware makes it easier for little ones to eat without messes. Their favorite princess on the front just makes it more fun.
Bath Time & Hygiene
The daily routine will be much more fun with some special bath products.
Frozen Kid Bubble Bath – Princess bubble bath is fun and tear free.
Sudprize Bath Bombs – My kids love bath bombs! This one turns the water a bright color without staining your white tub.
Crayola Sugar Cookie Slime Soap – OMG! Slime meets soap in this cool little product. How cool! Icky slime with holiday scents to get you clean? My kids will go crazy for this! Also available in Jolly Jellybean & Artic Mint.
Munchkin Bath Crayons – If my kids can make a mess, they are happy. These are nothing that a little wipe down after a bath can’t clean up and the kids enjoy them.
Munchkin Bath Letters – I actually got these for my 1 year old but my 4 (almost 5) year old has been playing with them like crazy lately. She loves for me to give her words to spell since she now recognizes letters.
Oral-B Princess Battery Toothbrush – I use a Sonicare and I know my daughter will love brushing her teeth like Mom.
Frozen Toothpaste – Essentials with characters are so much more fun. True story, I would not buy my daughter a toy at Target this weekend. She was sad until I told her she could pick out some toothpaste. My kids are easy to please!
Unicorn Lip Balm – Lip balm is great because little girls feel like it is makeup but with no color, there is less of a mess chance.This one is in a cute unicorn shape.
Character Band Aids – My kids go bananas for bandaids. These are even better than stickers. My daughter will have 10 bandaids on by Christmas dinner, I promise.
Wearable accessories make fun additions to the girly girl’s stocking. My daughter loves dressing up and a few accessories will surely put a smile on her face.
Cat & Jack Hairbows – I love the Cat & Jack brand at Target. It is nice quality at a good price. These cute little bows would fit perfectly in a stocking.
Kid Sunglasses – Sunglasses are always a fun little treat. Sunglasses remind me of the beach even if it is cold & dreary outside.
Magic Gloves – A pair of warm gloves to go with those cool shades!
I like arts and crafts because they are typically inexpensive and unlike some other “cheap” toys, they provide an activity for kids and get used.
Sidewalk Chalk – This might seem like something better suited for an Easter basket, but my kids love playing outside even if it is cold.
Barbie Color & Style Purse – this would be a fun little coloring craft that is under $5 to include in a girl’s stocking.
Crayola Coloring Book – coloring books are a great way to occupy the kids and provide a minute or two of quiet time.
Play Doh Multi Pack – Play Doh is always good for entertaining kids.
Nail Polish – Polishing the nails is basically an art form. I like that this polish is non-toxic.
Crayola Twistables Crayons – These are the BEST crayons. They are encased in plastic to prevent breakage.
Model Magic – Modeling clay is a great way to encourage imaginative play and building.
Silly Scents Colored Pencils – Scented coloring elevates the expereince. My daughter got some of these over the summer and has really enjoyed them.
Trolls Giant Coloring Pages – Huge fun for a small price tag.
Here are several toy options for stocking stuffers for 3-5 Year Old Girls under $5.
Bottle, Rattle & Pacifier Set – If your little one loves baby dolls, this is a cute set for her baby.
66 Pcs. Lego Set – My daughter has legos on her Christmas list. I love that you can get this educational toy for less than $5.
LOL Surprise Dress Up Dolls Activity Kit – My daughter loves anything LOL doll related! If you need more than 20 other LOL Gift ideas that are not the dolls, check out this post!
Crayola Slime – Slime gets a bad parental rap in my opinion! (don’t hate me!) I have strict rules about it but we love it at our house. My daughter’s favorite is to slime her toy figurines and LOL Dolls.
Frozen Lip Gloss & Mirror Set – We have this and my daughter loves to apply the lipstick. The mirror is plastic so there it won’t break if dropped.
Of course books are always a welcome purchase at my house. Reading to your kids is super important and there are quite a few choices that you can find under $5.
Fancy Nancy Book – We are into Fancy Nancy right now but there are lots of book options under $5.
Wipe Clean Workbook – Doing Pre-K school work is more fun with a dry erase marker!
I hope this list of stocking stuffers for 3-5 Year Old girls helps Santa fill those preschool stockings this year. Merry Christmas!

Oh my word I think those gloves and the bath bombs need to be in my kiddo’s stocking! So fun!
I sure do miss the simple days of when my daughter would love everything on this list. Lots of fun items here to beef up a stocking.
Stacy Craft says
I know it! My 3 older step kids are not as excited by under $5 items!
I didn’t know that the bath slime even existed! My daughter will love this!
Stacy Craft says
I really didn’t either! I have some shipping now! I will update once I see it and tell you guys how it is. Mine loves slime and I love the idea of keeping it contained in the tub instead of on my couch or carpet!!
Great list! Some of those things I would NEVER think about putting in a stocking, but also things I know my almost 4 year old daughter will love!
Amanda W. says
This is such a great list! As much as I hate my daughter getting junk for me to throw away, I really hate wasting my money on junk to throw away. And I really didn’t want to put a bunch of candy or junk food either. We’ve never tried slime in our house so I think that will be a big win!
These are so great and useful too! I always feel stocking stuffers are after thoughts and just grab any old thing. This will help me with my girls e. Pinning too!

You have given me great ideas for my daughter and tips to pass on to my parents! It’s so difficult trying to figure out stocking stuffers for toddlers. I think my daughter will enjoy a lot of the items you suggested.
What I love about these gifts is that they double as a gift for you! How many times do we run out of cups and plates? How many bandaids do we need? Great ideas! Although I do have to say no to the slime!
Stacy Craft says
Haha! My daughter is great with slime but I am guessing my new baby boy is not going to be that way. He is a mess already!

Yes! anything frozen and my daughter is happy!
