Stocking Stuffers and crafts galore!
One thing I love about Christmas is filling the kids stockings. It's always fun to fill them with an assortment of candies and fun things then watch to see how excited they get. Every year I try to do something a little different from the previous year and I try to do some sort of theme. This year I decided that everything was going to be Christmas themed. So I picked out some fun Christmas candies and stocking stuffers that were red, green, and white.
Another thing I get excited about doing is making up goodie bags for my daughter's class at school. I love it when she comes home all excited because her friends liked what was in them. This year I decided to include the history of the candy cane in their bags. They had been talking about different traditions in class so I thought this would be a great way for them to take home what they've been learning about.
While the kids are on break from school we always like to do DIY crafts together. It's always fun because we get out all sorts of crafting supplies and see what fun things we can come up with. This year I wanted to do something special so we are going to make snow globes and decorate snowflakes. Then we will give them as gifts at our New Years party. The kids love making things they can give to others and make them smile. And me? Well I just love spending quality time with my kids so it's a win-win for us all!
Do you have any great ideas or traditions you'd like to share? Please feel free to leave them for me in the comments below.
