Put foam board with wallpaper on back of bookshelf - change out when you want something different.
For the Christmas tree- Glue 2 mini mirrors, back to back and insert a silver metallic cord for hanging. Fill the insides of the tree with these after putting on the lights, but before putting on the ornaments. The sparkle will be tripled...and Christmas tree sparkle is awesome.

101 Elf On The Shelf Ideas - I love this idea in the comments - You can have your elf leave some money and ask that it be put in the bell ringer’s buckets, used to buy a toy for toys for tots, have him gather your old coats for a coat drive or donate food to a food drive.
New Year's time capsule, fun idea for a family tradition
Adding memories throughout the year and then reading them on New Year's Eve. I LOVE this idea as I find it hard to come up with child friendly New Years Eve Ideas AND I am really really bad at keeping track of all theh amazing day-to-day memories. Tried different journal kinds ... not working for me and my family. :-( But THIS sounds doable!!! Will start tomorrow! :-)
Peppermint Foot Soak: 1 cup of Epsom Salt, 1 cup of Sea Salt, 2 cups of Baking Soda, 15 drops peppermint oil(1 tsp tea tree oil if your foortreally need the additional antibacterial help) in a glass jar. Put the top on and shake it up. Done! :)
We did this last year.....Kids are still talking about it! Start your bedtime routine as usual, while one makes bags of popcorn and hot chocolate drinks and place them in the car, don’t forget to have Christmas music playing too! When the kids climb into bed, they will find the ticket hidden. The kids are instructed to grab their slippers and head for the car. Upon entrance to The Mommy Express, we hole punch the ticket, and we travel around the city looking at all the beautiful lights.
Im so going to do this! Hang ornaments in the windows :)
