Hot Chocolate Spoons
If you know my mom, you know this is unlike her. She had saved a huge box from work and brought it home to be a castle for the boys to play in DOWNSTAIRS. They love it. So for Christmas she brought it UPSTAIRS and we decorated it. She is actually leaving this in her living room for the holidays....Quite a site to see in Liz Johnson's Southern Living worthy home!
Let the kids decorate their own "gingerbread house" or "santa's workshop" only thing is where do you find a box like that!
This will help me organize all the early Christmas presents I buy!
styrofoam ball with toothpicks...we use to make these out of sweet gum balls that fall from the trees...you can make a Christmas tree, space toothpicks as to leave room for hanging minature ornaments...make 13 balls, stack 5 in circle, 4 in circle, 3 in circle, 1 on top to form tree shape... spray paint, glue, glitter, decorate...so many possibilities...

Scratch offs and money...hmmm....who will be the one laughing when the box of chocolates doesn't get picked ;) need to remember for next christmas!!!
How to introduce & use Elf on the Shelf with focus on love, grace, acceptance from A Small Snippet. Has kids teach about grace when elf is naughty. Idea that Santa is NOT just an old man who you have to please in order to earn his presents but Santa operates out of grace, because we all mess up & need to know we're still loved. Gives example letter from Santa to include with Elf.
Love the way she explains Jesus and Santa and how she manages to incorporate The Elf on The Shelf with lessons about grace...!
Gumdrop snowflakes...for for kids to make
santa hat brownie bites; great idea for Christmas...

Make snowmen out of glue. Decorate with paper, glitter etc. Then let dry on wax paper- use them as gift tags! You could do different shapes for all occasions too!
