Buy different colored felt, use a cookie cutter and trace ornaments. Decorate how you want with paint, beads or glitter. Add them to your child's tree, hang from string in the window.
Mix oatmeal, confetti candy, cinnamon and place it in a small Ziploc bag. Print out the following poem and attach it. Take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn. On Christmas eve, Santa's reindeer travel miles before dawn. The smell of oats and shimmer path will guide them on their way and you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas day.
Find your child's favorite cookie recipe and make them for Santa. You and your child can sample them, too.
Make homemade hot cocoa and read the Christmas Story or the Night Before Christmas.
