CHRISTMAS BUCKET...Kiddos unwrap a present every day in December with family activities.......write letters to Santa, make homemade ornaments, sort through toys to give to a shelter, go look at Christmas lights, Hot chocolate and toast before bed, Christmas movie and so on!

Ballon ninjas! Great idea for party!
To teach manners at the table! Any time someone at the table does something bad (burp, reach across the table, get up from the table, etc.) They get the pig.

For future reference...Forever 21 maternity! Nothing is priced over $20!

I wish I had known about this during all those years of patting and patting and patting and patting...what a great idea!
