Make one every year! Clear ornament with a pic inside of your family for that year. maybe with Christmas card pic. How cool would it be to have whole set years to come. Can go back and get old pics to catch up!
The Christmas Jar: 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. Must read the book "The Christmas Jar" it explains how it all started.
Sparkling Ice Crystal = String up a few of these crystals, made of pipe cleaners and beads, and get ready for a flurry of compliments. For a cool twist, use silver pipe cleaners and pom-poms too. Great to hang in a window to catch winter sunlight.
