  35. I have five grandchildren that I come up with things for them to do every time an occasion comes up. This Thanksgiving I made a shopping list for each child and they needed to find the items that I displayed on the book shelves. One particular item had a number and this number dictates the covered surprise they won. They had a choice to keep it or trade it. Since my grandchildren are little I had printed small pictures of the items they needed to retrieve. So much fun and not so happy faces when they traded their gifts away. With these prizes I could do wonders with much needed activities and make this grandma’s job easier.

  36. My kids would like so many of these, especially the origami dinosaur. These would be great to do at Grandma’s house too!

  37. We love doing crafty things, so this would be amazing! Crafting on a strict budget is not easy πŸ™

  42. My youngest daughter loves making crafty things. These books would be great fun, especially if we get snowed in again this winter.

  43. This year, we’re doing “Advent in Narnia” each evening, and an activity (recipe, craft, gift-making, etc.) each day in homeschool. So thrilled it’s December! πŸ™‚
