For other menu suggestions, check Stocking Stuffers Your Kids Will Love (NAPS)--As the holiday season draws near, the search for the per- fect stocking stuffers begins. The holiday stocking is a great place for small-sized surprises before the paper-ripping frenzy of gift-open- ing begins. Here are a few ideas for stocking stuffers that are sure to entice a few happy squeals: A video of your kids' favorite movie is a safe bet for all ages. Kids love watching movies at home anytime, and it's a wonder- ful ay to entertain them occa- sionally for an hour or two on a rainy day. An educational and fun stock- ing stuffer is a book or magazine. For younger kids, a book with many colorful pictures will grab their interest and encourage read- ing. Older kids will enjoy a maga- zine for their age group; a sub- scription to their favorite makes a gift that lasts all year. Girls will love hair acces- sories; jeweled barrettes are espe- cially well-liked. Why not give a practical-yet- fun gift? Fruity-scented L'Ordal Kids Shampoo keeps hair clean and tangle-free, and the fish- shaped bottles float in the tub, making bath time fun. * Bean-bag toys are extremely popular, and appeal to all ages (even adults!). Giving the gift of music en- courages creativity--kids can sing, dance, or be inspired to take up an instrument. An audio tape or CD is always a great idea. An addition to a kid's collec- tion makes a nice stocking stuffer --a different version of a toy car for their race track, a sports collec- tor's card, a limited-edition doll, or a computer or video game will be welcomed. To combine a wonderful gift with an opportunity to spend time together, give them tickets to a play, show, or event in your area. Homemade coupons they can redeem for special activities, such as "pizza-movie-ice cream nights," can also be fun treats that give kids the chance to "plan" the activ- ities for a change. (NAPS)---Here are a few web sites you may care to visit to help with your holiday shopping and 'ear round pleasure. PLACE sugar in empty pot of coffee maker. Prepare coffee with cold water. When brewing is complete, stir in hot eggnog. Serve immediately. TOP each serving with whipped topping; sprinkle with additional nutmeg.
