such a great idea.scan your kids artwork & make them into photobooks. Then you don't have all those pieces of paper & you have their artwork forever. (This is a neat idea because I know most of my artwork as a kid got tossed out eventually)
For girls a Year of Dates for Christmas – an envelope for each month, with a special surprise date inside. Date ideas are a variety of fun activities. Some are outings, while some are doing projects at home. We also tried to keep them fairly inexpensive.
This collection of Beginner Holiday Projects are so creative. From festive recipes to easy DIY decorations, we love the idea of scattering these homemade crafts throughout your home this Christmas season—especially the team-themed wreaths!
Life size Lincoln Logs made out of pool noodles~ 15 pool noodles from the dollar store, cut in half, cut notches out easily, with scissors = hours and hours of fun playtime! These were my favorite toy as a kid, love the life size!
