Happy Monday! I hope you are finding some bits of peace and relaxation during this exciting and busy time of year. I wanted to share one more Christmas activity with you before signing off for a few days to enjoy all our family activities.
Tonight, we’ll be reading The Polar Express. To be honest, my girls have not really been interested in this story in past years, but I think this year they will love it. In the morning, they will find this little tin on the front porch:
I will leave it outside all night, so it can get very cold — just like you would expect from a North Pole delivery. (Another option is to put it in your freezer all night…)
Inside, the girls will find:
Two very cold and shiny jingle bell necklaces. The fanciest thing I had at home to string them on was some silver embroidery floss.
There’s even a special label on the bottom:
I have had this tin forever, waiting for something to do with it. You could also wrap them in a small box, a paper lunch bag, etc. Leave the bells on the front porch, in your mailbox, on your child’s pillow, etc. Have fun!
Back again soon — Merry Christmas! :)
