Grapes: While toasting to midnight on New Year's is often associated with bottles and flutes of champagne, it is a popular tradition in Spain to ring in the new year with twelve grapes, one for each month of the year. Adopt this tradition with your family for a kid-friendly and sweet New Year's Eve treat!

Christmas Fireplace Sugar cookies

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. Sounds fun!

Marshmallows dipped in caramel, left to harden, and dunked in chocolate (all on a stick)

DIY Christmas ornaments..... They are a great memory on the tree each year! Can make them a little differently (cut the pics in a circle to fit and backed them with card stock, put each person's name on card stock and year) & used a dab of hot glue to keep in place (put near the top and put the lid back on). Can also fill with "snow". It's a great project & gift!

Make one for each each place that you've lived or traveled
