Looking for something fun to do? Several years ago someone on the FIAR board posted a great idea for activity bags used to count down to the New Year. I won't be posting my activities for this year until after the event. (Don't want any of my kids to see it in advance - plus I love posting it with pictures.)
In case you want to see more of what I'm talking about, here are posts from the last 3 years of what we did.
2009 - The theme was monsters.
2008 - The theme was spies
2007 - Our first year doing this with no theme. Still lots of fun. Look how tiny Eliana is in these pictures!
This is so much fun and my children are already looking forward to it!
If you do this, I'd love to hear more about your night - please share info and/or a link!
