Around Christmas we are always looking for ideas to help our kids get into the Spirit of Christmas. Sometimes it feels like we get caught up in the “What am I getting for Christmas” thing. This year was our first year that most of our kids were old enough to really be able to do something like this, they are ages 4-9. So we wrote each persons name on paper and put them in a bowl. Then each person took a turn drawing a name and made sure to keep it a secret who they drew. The kids loved the excitement of it!!! Then for 2 weeks we spent our time trying to secretly serve that person. Each time after you served your secret pal you got to sneak a hershey kiss onto their pillow – that was one of the best parts. It was so fun and I saw my kids doing some of the nicest things for each other. We were all looking for that opportunity to secretly serve each other and not get caught – it was tricky! On Christmas Eve the secret pals were revealed. All the kids had such a good time they asked “when are we doing this again!?!” We’ll see if its in the cards for Valentine’s Day this year.
