EASY Fun Elf on the Shelf Ideas for the Christmas Season
Easter Bunny Coral & Aqua Chevron Door Hanger by KnockinOnWood
Tree skirt instead of ugly Christmas sweater
I love this tree. It could be used at the end of a hall to add light and interest, on the wall of a foyer especially when there is a wall facing the entrance door instead of a wide open foyer or living space, or even in a small apartment that does not have room for a traditional Christmas tree. Leave it up all year long and replace the ornaments with family photos, shells or small pieces of art.
Christmas traditions to start with your spouse
25 Best Holiday Appetizers CW - 7 layer dip in a cup…of course!!! Keeps it in all 7 layers for each guest to enjoy! Brilliant!
Glitter Pumpkins - cute on those mini-pumpkins that are too small to carve.
Tic tac toe - kids write a "O" on the marshmallows and Elf will play his "X" every night. Good way to take up a couple of days! Could accompany with a note.
Christmas Eve Box - Include: New pajamas, a Christmas movie, popcorn, mugs, hot chocolate, marshmallows, and a Christmas book. This could definitely turn into a tradition.
This is exactly how my parents explained Santa - and it made perfect sense as a kid. There was no let down or crying, just excitement that now that I knew, I got to help participate in the magic of Christmas for my little brothers and other families! I plan on doing the exact same for my boys when they get older.
