1.Keep your preschooler entertained with videos, CDS, CD-Roms or DVDs.
2.Offer them action figures, a hand puppet, crayons, coloring books or small Lego sets that will keep them busy.
3.Give your kid a sense of safety with a cool night-light or a flashlight.
4.Challenge your child with small puzzles or educational card games.
5.Drop in a few fun things: a Pez dispenser, bubbles, stickers, finger paints or small cans of Play-Doh.
6.Add some twinkle to the mix with a few pieces of candy with shiny wrappers (c'mon--it's Christmas!).
7.Throw in a "license plate" with your child's name on it for the tricycle.
Tips: Including a special ornament for the tree (perhaps with your child's name and the date inscribed) in the stocking every year is a nice tradition--when your child grows up, he or she will have a lifelong collection of ornaments.
