Explore Our Kids, The Kid, and more!

Original pinner says:  "Each year our kids choose ten old toys to put in their Santa bags. These must be toys in decent shape that other kids would actually want. We leave the bags under our tree until we can drop them at Goodwill or a service center.  After we give the old toys away, we go inside the store and each child gets to pick one 'new' toy to take home. Great way to de-clutter, recycle old toys, and teach the kids about giving rather than receiving."
