Earlier I saw an article about a Christmas Eve Box. I thought "What a great idea"! My grand kids would love it. But you know me I have to take it 1 step further. Mine is just going to be called a Christmas Box. Next year I will have a much better box, but for this year I have to use what I have. So what did I have? A wine tote box. Yep it originally held 4 bottles from a winery up in Door County Wisc. I didn't want to go too crazy on the decorating of the box because this is a 1 time thrifty use so I just covered the sides that had the winery name on it.
I then got started. Everything in the box is for an activity for the kids to do as the big day approaches. For example....I put in a couple craft kits from Michael's and a few homemade craft kits. I just put them into clear bags and made a topper for the bag. Ingredients for reindeer food and recipe to make it as well as snowman soup. Some popcorn for a snack night, Color sheets that are also the letters to send to Santa. A special letter from Santa was included as well as an activity calendar.
The grand kids are so excited for the holidays that I thought this would help their mom and dad from going crazy with the "Is it Christmas yet?" As you can see not all the days are filled in. I mean you need a little breather right? I'm really liking this idea and cant wait to start designing the one for next year. I will definitely be more organized and I would like to give the box to the kids by December 1st.
Well that's all for now.
Til next time...................................
