It’s that time of year!!!!
Are you bombarded this time of year with that wonderful question…
“What do the kids want for Christmas?”
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate everyone who wants to buy them stuff, but honestly…
I can’t keep it all straight!
Oh and those commercials….
The never ending loop of holiday commercials!
All I hear…
“Ma, can I have that?”
“Ma, can you put that on my list???”
“Ma, come quick, you’ve got to see this!”
First off, I don’t have to come quick. We have DVR.
Secondly, I don’t want to see another commercial for Tron, or Star Wars, or Lego, or Spongebob Operation!
So, I’ve come up with a solution…
Letters to Santa – Or to Hanukkah Harry…
Prep Time: 5 minutes Craft Time: 25 minutes
What you need:
Kid scissors (or regular scissors depending on the age of your kids)
Catalogs Galore (Toys, Electronics, Clothes – all the stuff that comes to your house all the time this season.)
What to do:
Set the kids up at the table with their catalogs and scissors.
Let them cut out all the things they’d like to ask Santa for (toys, iPods, socks, whatever)
Once they’ve cut it out have them glue it onto their poster board.
They can color their poster board too and decorate it to match their personality so Santa will be sure to know it’s theirs, and you’ll know what to tell the in-laws when they ask what the kiddos want this year.
I made one too…
I’m telling Santa that I’ve been a very very good girl and I’d really like that smoker please!
