Today means there are 83 days days until we get the big visit from St Nicholas. Now, don’t panic! To try and help you, we have put together a list of great stuff to help you count down to the big event.
- There will be 31 different crafts that you still have time to make, for gifts, in October.
- There will be 30 different cookie recipes, that you can gather ingredients to bake, off in November.
- There will be 24 different things you can add to your family holiday traditions in December – to help keep the Christ in Christmas.
Let’s get started with those crafts!
Ornaments are a great gift – I like to date them so they become a simple memory and add them to gift baskets of home made jam, sweet breads, etc. Here is something sweet from Little Bit Funky — thumbprint ornaments! A box or ornaments usually runs $3-6 and has 5-10 ornaments in it – that is a VERY thrifty gift.
What do you need?
Ornaments, brown craft paint, a little red paint and a black marker..
