Macy's has a special mailbox in their stores just for "Dear Santa" letters. And now you can go online to write, decorate and print your letter. My kids love to write their own letter and take it to the special mailbox. Since I can't keep the letter as a keepsake, I take a quick photo of each one for a special memory. Click HERE.
Amy from "She Wears Many Different Hats" shares with us this simple recipe for making sugar cookie paint. It is made from egg yolks and food coloring - you paint it on before you bake the cookies. Add some sprinkles and you have some very festive cookies. Love it! For all the details, go HERE.
This is a fun activity for the kids. Activity Village has an advent calendar that you can click on each day to find lots of free activities, games and printables! No peeking, though! You can only click on one each day! Click HERE.
Got some small gifts to wrap? LoveMae is offering 6 different sheets of wrapping paper that you can download for free. You can use this for all kinds of things besides wrapping a gift. Use it for small gift tags to put on presents or decorate a jar of your homemade cookie mix by gluing a strip of the paper around the jar. Add a card with the recipe and you've got an instant gift! Click HERE to print.
