LOVE this idea for the first morning of the return of the Elf, swimming in a sink of mini marshmallows, and a bowl of powdered donuts for breakfast with a little treat for the kids, and of course the Elf on a Shelf book to read!

I really like the idea of making the holidays more about spending time together than about "getting stuff." Activities include: Make hot chocolate and stir with candy canes, Watch a christmas movie and eat popcorn, Go out for a Christmas treat, Do something nice for someone, Drive around and look for Christmas lights.
