Awesome idea in place of candy from an advent calendar! 24 books of Christmas - one for each night. Wrap and let kids pick one to open every night to read at bedtime! *Do this instead of candy advent calendar*
Snowman Wrapped candy bars - Wrap a full sized chocolate bar with white wrapping paper and draw on the faces. For the earmuffs, use a black pipe cleaner and pom poms. Use buttons or black puffy paint and a cute ribbon and tag to complete the look.
This is exactly my plan this year! How to not excess Christmas and make it more special: Each child gets 4 presents. Something they want Something they need Something to wear Something to read.and then take a christmas vaction instead
