A couple days before Christmas we make a big batch of cookies, breads, and candies for the kids to take home.

This year we are making ornaments with hand prints on mini tree slabs. We are cutting down trees at our project property, so I am making use of them. The kids paint a paper ornament every year that I laminate. The bag usually gets some home made goodies too.

I'll let you know when I know! last year I did $10 limit ea. So they got a Melissa and Doug wood puzzle. Older kids got jigsaw style wood ones while younger ones got chunky ones. The year before I did a princess Barbie for girls, an action figure for boys and a $1 Christmas coloring book for all. Babies got something else.. I can't remember though .. soft book and stuffed toy I think.

Sorry just realized you were asking about parent gifts! The kids made a wall hanging decoration for parents. Foot prints painted like mice with the twas the night before Christmas quote and a string of lights painted using their thumb prints.

This year we're doing snow globes. In the past I've done handprint/footprint calendars but they're a lot of work (my guys are 12-18 months). When I don't know what to make I fall back on cinnamon dough handprint ornaments.
