Each kid gets their own wrapping paper - none of the gifts are marked, and in order to know which gifts are theirs, they have to find a tiny piece of their wrapping paper in the bottom of their stocking. it's a little last minute excitement, as they see the gifts, but don't know which belongs to who. Cute and some great Christmas traditions in this blog post.

Instead of gingerbread house, make a nativity, so much more meaningful! Sooo changing it up... I feel a gingerbread party coming on, fun for the kids!

Love this surprise Christmas tradition! Start your bedtime routine as usual, while Dad makes bags of popcorn and hot chocolate drinks and place them in the car, dont forget to have Christmas music playing too! When the kids climb into bed, they will find the ticket hidden. The kids are instructed to grab their slippers and head for the car. Upon entrance to The Minivan Express, we hole punch the ticket, and we travel around the city looking at all the beautiful lights. What an awesome idea!

Christmas Eve Surprise Box Tradition!  So so want to start something similar for Theo this year :-) though of course it'd be more for me as he'd be most interested in the box itself...

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...

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.
