The 12 Days of Christmas & A Giveaway!

**update:the links should work now**
Do you do 12 days of Christmas for your family, friends or neighbors? What do you do?

I really need to get mine organized! Here are some of my ideas:

Cookie Mix (cookies in a jar?)
Christmas story & Candy Canes
Christmas DVD
Hot Cocoa and mugs
Reindeer Dust :) (recipe to come)
Goodies- Peppermint Bark- (Recipe to come...)
Cute Vinyl Lettering Sign
Wooden Service Star (details to come...)

What are some things you do?


Here is something I am going to do this year with my family...



Me & Marie have fabulous learning tools for little ones! The best part... they are all PDF files so you don't have to pay for shipping!!! ( I detest shipping fees!)

Here is the cute 12 days of Christmas package they gave me to print out:



Each day has a song and something fun to do. There is a countdown chain, games, crafts and more! It will be so fun for my 3 year old to do!
Here are some other products they have:
File Folder Games
Shop with Me cards (love this!)
My overall thoughts on Me and Marie

Selection- Me & Marie have Learning Packs, Pretend Play Props, File Folder Games and lots more! There is a great selection to help you and your child have fun with learning.
Product quality- Great! Nice color (depending on how you print it…) and great variety
Price- The different PDF’s range from $1.25 to $35 (for a whole set).
Promptness- Obviously this was much quicker than having it mailed to me! Within 24 hours I had it and was on my way to having fun.
Overall- GREAT! I am definitely going to be ordering from them in the future! These will make great gifts!!

For the 12 days of Christmas, we try to give people things corresponding with the actual 12 days - for instance, 1 - a box of pears (partridge in a pear trea), 2 - dove chocolates and caramel turtles (turtle doves), 3 - 3 frozen game hens, 4 - we used to do calling cards (calling birds) but in today's day of cell phone we'll have to think of something else, 5 golden rings - krispy kreme donuts.....etc.

We like to giveaway at least 1 item that the family has to do together - like a story to read or a gingerbread house to decorate. The kids love running it to their house and trying to escape undetected.

I have a little nativity set that I wrap individually for the 12 days. Then the kids open one at a time and we talk about how that piece fits into the nativity story. My kids love it. They're so excited to see which figures come first.

I've done Christmas stories before with a little goodie to go along with each one-ex: Christmas oranges story with a chocolate orange or real oranges. (I've also done 12 days of Christmas in July for Christmas in July and it was tons of fun. I think I did it because I'd been too busy in Dec, but it was nice for me and those I gave it to to remember Christ and Christmas more than in December.)

We like to make homemade caramel!
I've also seen 12 little gifts wrapped up with a scripture inside and when you're done, you've read the entire story of Jesus' birth.
