    hi,

    does anyone have the radtion of a christmas eve box/bag?

    we did it as kids and i did it with mine last yr for the 1st time. in it are the following:

    new pjs for kids
    slipper socks for everyone
    xmas bubble bath (or similar)
    an xmas dvd
    popcorn or sweets
    reindeer food
    personalised stories for kids
    christmas stockings
    a key for santa as we have no chimney (doesnt fit my door - was an old 1)
    instructions

    1. sprinkle reinder food in garden
    2. leave key outside under a stone
    3. go have a bath with xmas bubble bath
    4. get into new pjs and slipper socks
    5. open popcorn or sweets
    6. watch dvd
    7. hang christmas stockings up
    8. go to be and listen to stories
    9. go to sleep and SANTA will come by morning.

    Awww that's a very cute idea!!! So it's just one big bag with stuff for everyone in it? Or everyone gets a bag?

    thats fine, i found it on net last year. i hope it helps and starts a new tradition for you. x

    i guess you could do individual bags depending on how many kids etc but i did ours as 1 bag (plastic santa sack) and tied the top with ribbon.

    there is no end to what you could add -

    xmas cuddly toy
    xmas colouring book n crayons
    xmas cup, plate and bowl
    xmas hairbobbles (girls)

    mine are getting toothbrushes this year as they have chewed theirs!!! most of ours came from £1 shop last year apart from dvd and the stories i found on net for you to print. i copied and pasted to word so i could "edit" and add both boys names last year and have done the same for all 3 this year.
