Stitch comes with a book, he is posable and his Hawaiian Santa hat can be swapped from Nice to Naughty. The book Holiday Mischief with Stitch teaches Stitch about Holiday traditions here on earth. Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza and how people celebrate differently. It is a longer read but even my short attention span 3 year old loved it. When I brought him out she couldn’t wait to see what he was going to be up to next.
I know coming up with ideas for these things can be tough. Some days Stitch will bring things. Mostly craft or Christmas type things. Others he will just be somewhere new, and we are also incorporating some acts of kindness and as well as incorporating him in remembering the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus Birthday. Here I’m sharing ideas for your Holiday Mischief with Stitch.
1. Add him into your Christmas Decor
This is so easy to do! Here is just placed Stitch on top of my little white houses, almost like Santa.
2. Let Stitch Nap
Use a Christmas Stocking like a sleeping bag for Stitch. He napped or slept all night in the Christmas stocking, he was tired from all the Mischief and wanted to take a break.
3. Have a Tea Party
This Beauty and the Beast Tea Cart was so perfect for Stitch. If you have a little girl you probably have a tea set of some sort. Set it up for Stitch to be having a Tea Party. Your littles will love it.
4. Oooooo you have been Chosen
Let Stitch be the chosen one. I just couldn’t resist this with our Santa Alien popcorn bucket and will definitely be using this in my house on one of those I just have nothing else nights. You can totally DIY an Alien use Alien Toys you might have, or whatever else you can come up with.
5. There Seems to be no Sign of Intelligent Life Anywhere
We love Slinky Dog Dash. My toddler loved it from the moment she saw commercials so I brought her Slinky home from Toy Story Weekend. Of course this little mini Toy Story Land set up was perfect.
6. Hanging off a Countdown Chain
We have this Slinky Countdown that my daughter just wanted to leave up so we dressed him up for Christmas. You can find the DIY Slinky Countdown here. Maybe you have a countdown chain for Christmas or could easily make one. Stitch hands move perfectly to hang on.
See how we made this Countdown Chain here.
7. Taking a Bubble Bath
Stitch got into some playroom Mischief and decided to take a bubble bath in the play kitchen sink. I used peppermint marshmallows since they were pink and also what I had on hand but any mini ones would work for this.
8. Boogity Boogity Lets Go Racing
Chances are you have some toy cars laying around the house. Pull them out and set Stitch up for race with friends. Your kids will surely get a kick out of it.
9. Bring a Gingerbread House
Have an activity you already plan to do with the kids like a gingerbread house? Have stitch bring it the day you plan to do it. It’s an easy very little effort idea.
Stitch got into the crayons and is solving word puzzles and is ready to color. I grabbed this Christmas themed pack in the Target Dollar Spot but you can totally use something you already have.
11.All Tangled Up
Find a cheap, yet fun engaging activity for your child. These are great for coordination and they are another Dollar Spot find. For a toddler they can provide a good bit of entertainment.
12.Get Into the Coffee Bar
Mostly just a moving pose to fill the slots but let Stitch get into Mom and Dads stuff too. My daughter knows this is Mommy’s spot in the morning. If your a coffee lover it’s a great spot to use.
13.Take a Spin on the Tea Cups
We obviously love Disney and my daughter loves the tea cups so I set up this make shift Tea Cups ride with coffee mugs and other friends. Something your littles are sure to get a kick out of.
14.Threaten to Call Santa
Ok so I know everyone doesn’t have a pillow that says this but you can totally make a sign. Let’s face it we definitely have rough days as parents and the kids have rough days to. I’ve probably threatened to call Santa more times that I can count.
15.Do you Wanna Build a Snowman
Ok so maybe you don’t have a Olaf but you can still build a snowman. Use Powdered Sugar Donuts, or cotton balls. Make it fun and build and snowman Elsa and Anna to help or not.
16.Have him make new Friends
I found these little houses in yet again the Target Dollar Spot. We are so into all things little houses so I thought these were just so cute! I know she will love these when the day comes to give them to her. We also love little people so you could use those if you have them laying around.
17.Have Stitch excite the kids for the days plans
I used a little tree I had in my decor and wrote a little note about getting the Christmas tree. You could use it for a movie night, or any other activities too.
Just like announcing plans for the day have Stitch show ways to share kindness. Have spare change leave it with Stitch for the kids to toss in the Salvation Army bucket the next time your out. Get an Angel Tree child or buying for a child in need have Stitch leave a note about shopping for another child and how it’s better to give than receive.
19.Use the Kids Toys
You can totally get creative with the Toys the kids have in the house already. I used some little dogs to make it like Santa Stitch and the reindeer, and get Fire Truck for Stitch to take a ride on. I used her favorite Ice cream set to have Stitch eating the ice cream. If you get a few minutes with the kids Toys you can totally get creative!
20.Hot Cocoa Date for Two
We are loving Hot Cocoa right now so set Stitch up for a Hot Cocoa Date. This plate was another Target find and it came with the plastic mugs which I’ve been looking for everywhere because my child wants a mug to drink from and glass is well breakable.
I hope this helps in giving you some ideas for using your Stitch this Season. These were just a few ideas I came up with but I may not use all of them. Make sure to check out my Instagram where I’ll be sharing Stitch in my stories daily.
