Recipe: Snowy Chocolate Pinecones (made from nutella and cereal) - Super Easy
"Elf on the Shelf" alternative - the "Wandering Wisemen." Move the Wisemen around the house as they search for Jesus. The kids have fun finding them all over the house. They Wisemen can face obstacles, maybe stop for food and drinks etc until Christmas morning when they arrive at the Nativity. (This idea is actually kind of cute!)

Christmas Photo Booth? Even if it wouldn't be manageable in H'ville, this could be a special feature for satellites? We could offer the photos online a la Mother's Day. If we DID do photo booths, we could use printables like this (just $9 on Etsy) and host another craft night like with the Herbie books where folks would cut out and assemble the props.
