    Original pinner says: "Each year our kids must 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 on Christmas Eve. Santa takes the old toys back to the North Pole to fix them up he leaves new toys in the bag. Great way to declutter, recycle old toys, and teach the kids about giving.

      Kids choose ten old toys to put in their Santa bag. These must be toys in decent shape that other kids would want. Leave the bag under the tree on Christmas Eve. Santa takes the old toys back to the North Pole to fix them up and leaves new toys in the bag. Santa leaves a few "family gifts" under the tree. Great way to declutter, recycle old toys, and teach the kids about giving rather than receiving.

    Great way to declutter and recycle old toys BEFORE Christmas! Also, a great idea for kids to give to those in need.

    Cute New Years Tradition~ Santa always forgets one present he left at the North Pole, so on New Year's eve he drops it by unnoticed. (have a neighbor ding dong ditch it with a note from Santa.) Its fun if its a "family gift" such as a movie or game to enjoy on New Years Eve.
