CHRISTMAS BUCKET...Kids unwrap an activity a day......write letters to Santa, make homemade ornaments, sort through toys to give to a shelter, go look at Christmas lights, Hot chocolate before bed, Christmas movie and so on. I will have to get this ready the weekend after Thanksgiving.

25 days of Christmas with a book, movie, craft and snack!

It's a Christmas Eve box (they get to open it on Christmas Eve)! They get new pjs (to wear that night), a Christmas movie, hot chocolate, snacks for the movie, etc!!! This would be an awesome new tradition!!

advent calendar activity Add activities to advent calendar - Drink hot chocolate, watch a Christmas movie, look at Christmas lights, etc.

Christmas Eve Surprise Box. Include: new pajamas, Christmas movie, popcorn, mugs, hot chocolate, marshmallows, Christmas book. Good idea!

Homemade costumes! A whole website of hundreds of costume ideas.

Now I get it, you can write down activities to do TOGETHER. Like bake something, or take a walk & look at Christmas lights. The only "activity" I had seen before was write to Santa.

I also use this recipe for all sorts of Christmas ornaments. Very easy to make. :)

Cute and simple idea for homemade Christmas gifts!

A wrapped empty box (left open) for Christmas morning trash. You see the box instead of a big garbage bag in pics. Great for birthdays, too. One of the best Pinterest ideas I've seen.

Scavenger-hunt Great for those kids who don't believe in Santa......

I'm so doing this for Christmas! Love it! Except, I will probably add a Santa hat to cover the lid instead of ear muffs.
