  30. I love having my children do crafts for other people. I think that it really helps to teach them that the meaning of the holidays is to think about your loved ones and to bring joy to them. It is so easy for kids too get stuck on – “What am I getting?” I want them to feel the joy of creating something that truly makes another happy. I hope I can teach them the true joy of finding the perfect gift, a gift that you have spent a long time planning and finding the exact right thing. It is my favorite part of the year. I spend the whole year thinking about it and planning.

  31. Thanks so much for sharing my post!
