Christmas, next year

ggksOctober 26, 2007

I have already started thinking about what to do about next year christmas. We have 27 great grand children. I make something that I can give to all of them ages 6 months to 11 years. So I must start early. I am thinking about giving each person a 2.00 bill. Either folding it some clever way, wrapping it around something like a package of gum. If anyone has some cleaver ideas, please send it in.

In past years I have made drawstring bags, rag dolls and bean bags.

Oh My GGKS, 27 "great grandchildren" - My first granddaughter was born this past August and for that matter, she's my first grandchild. Are you into getting things for all of them at the Dollar Store, I do believe they have some great things for kids. I know my brothers and sisters and I used to just love getting new crayons and coloring books for Christmas. I'll keep thinking on this and get back to you with more things when I come up with them.

I have made several things out of magnetic chip clips. You could clip the $2 bill in the clip. I did a moose, a dog, and this year a penguin. The clips are from Dollar Tree for 3/$1, so the price is definitly right.

You can see the dog and moose at

Here's the penguin...
