Idea for the kids on Christmas morning - crepe paper the door to their rooms . then they have to break out in the morning by busting through the crepe paper. Can also do for birthdays (decorate living area with balloons and crepe paper too).
For those of you who have kids starting kindergarten next year. Starting in Kindergarten, put the child's graduation year on a large tshirt. Take a picture each year with same shirt to watch the child grow into the shirt. Display at graduation party!

Each year kids must choose ten old toys to put in their Santa bags. leave the bags under the tree on Christmas Eve. Santa takes the old toys back to the North Pole. Great way to declutter, recycle old toys, and teach the kids about giving.
