Twelve Days of Christmas gift idea that kids will love

Is there anything more magical than 
a child's anticipation of Christmas?
I love seeing my kids bouncing with excitement as
the lights sparkle, the gift wrap tears and the sounds
of merriment fill the air for about 10 mins.
And then what's left?
Torn wrapping paper and discarded toy boxes.

Want a great way to extend the magic of
Christmas for longer than just one day?
Give the gift of the 
Twelve Days of Christmas

12 days of Christmas gift idea for kids

Twelve Days of Christmas
The idea of the 12 days of Christmas is to spread 
out the merriment by giving one
gift a day for twelve days.

12 days of Christmas gift idea that kids will love, daily gifts

The gifts can be any 
smaller items:

Christmas movie
bubble bath
water bottle
matchbox cars
cookie mix
coloring book and crayons
Christmas craft
Christmas ornament
colored pencils
hair bows
 action figures

Each of the small gifts gets wrapped separately 
and numbered for each of the 12 days,
then put into a larger gift bag.

my true love gave to me
some socks for my feet."

After the gift is wrapped, tie on a tag with the number
of the day it should be opened.
