  • Last year we were in a hotel - because we had a house fire! - anyway.... the kids and I did some crafts and made ornaments. This was fun for the kids, and it made nice little gifts from the kids to grandma and grandpa. I actually "made" a christmas tree out of pine cones and decorated it with ornaments we made from painted acorns. hehe. There are so many ways to make great ornaments, framing a picture of the kids... or having them paint/decorate a plain picture frame and you give grandparents a cute snap shot of the kids in a frame they decorated.

    A girl friend of mine bakes, she made mini-loaves. (pumkin and chocolate chip muffins) Yum! Found some great tins for them at the dollar store and had delicious gifts cheaply.

  • Oh I thought of one more.. a few years ago my friend made what was similar to a "bean bag" but it has rice in it.. you microwave it and it works like a heating pad. It stays warm a good long while! I see these for sale in the mall all the time at little kiosks. She said it was super easy!  If you get creative you can add scents and such to make them soothing...
