What a great tradition to start.... Have family put money in mason jar throughout year. At Christmas time, choose someone to bless (anonymously). On Christmas eve, deliver by Ring and Run... and enjoy warm fuzzies.
From Dec. 1 to Dec. 24th each time you spot your child serving others you put coins or dollar bills in their pouch. On Dec. 24th you count the money and allow them to choose an item from the Compassion's gift catalog to give to someone in need.
Gingerbread men with yummy icing, are oh so good and extremely enticing. I set out to make a dozen or two, but time ran out, so now what to do? So instead o the cookies, I tied with a bow, your own personal sering of holiday dough.

Christmas Tree Circles: saw a cross section from the bottom of your Christmas tree trunk or from a smaller piece from the middle of the tree after Christmas. Write the year on it and decorate. Also thought about podging a photo of the family in front of the tree to the other side. Have to start this year!
Place your child's wishlist in a clear glass (or plastic) ornament each year & watch how their interests and likes change as they grow. Makes a great family heirloom to be passed down or continued with the next generation
Interesting...How to make Christmas more special: Each child gets 4 presents. 1. Something they want 2. Something they need 3. Something to wear 4. Something to read.....I think this would be great, and then take a christmas vaction instead of all of the things they really don't need! Something to think about...
