alt I used Crayola Model Magic (soft, squishy, modeling material) for making handprints for the children's Christmas presents for mom and dad.  It's nontoxic and it isn't messy or sticky.  Roll it out flat and round for a handprint.  Stamp the child's hand in washable ink and then on to the mold.  It dries in a day, but it isn't brittle and won't break.  We had a blast.  One package of Model Magic makes three molds, for one package that's 3.99. But you can buy it in bulk and it's cheaper and makes 4 molds per package.  The kids LOVED it and it makes a great gift for parents.  I sprayed the molds with a clear paint so the ink won't wash off later, that's optional though.  I then wrapped it in colored tissue paper.  (Idea by Sharla Arnold / ga07222007)

alt We gave a flannel pillowcase rolled up with a ribbon and bell attached with a cute tag that read" When on this pillow if you can't sleep, talk to the Shepherd, don't count sheep!" On the back of the tag was the following: In olden times, a bell was placed around the neck of sheep so that the shepherd could hear his sheep and know where to find them. Our Savior, even Jesus, The Christ, is that Shepherd. Merry Christmas, We made the pillowcases from full size sheet sets, we could get 12 out of a set (Target 50% off) They are a winter scene with snowflakes. We thought a winter theme was better then Christmas print, because they could use them after the holidays. (Idea by Teri)

alt I have a friend who gives her children four gifts at Christmas. They always know not to expect more. She makes a tag for: Want It, Need It, Wear It, Read It.  You could make reusable fabric gift bags each year to go along with them....just an idea.  (Melanie Day)
alt Letting the Christ child in
alt On Christmas Eve we go out for Chinese food, then go watch the "live" Nativity, go home and write our "letters to Jesus" (this would be a goal or something you want to work on for the year that would bring you closer to Jesus), open our christmas jammies, have family prayer, go to bed. Christmas morning we have family prayer, read out loud our "gift to Jesus", then dig into our stockings, then presents. We have done this for 13 years now. Our married children love doing this still!!  (by MaryAnn Baker)
