Christmas Houses

On a recent trip to the local Wicker Emporium I happened on these cute little houses! At $1.80 each, I had to buy all six! "What are you going to do with these?" asked the clerk. How much time did she have? So far I have been told by my DS6 that they would make great houses for his Lego guys(not likely), I have thought I should fill them with tiny treats for a 'welcome to the neighborhood' gift, paint them black for "Booing"use them for Christmas gifts, and keep one or two back for my mantel. Any ideas?

prep and landing

Disney's Prep and Landing has a great printable to help the kids get ready for Santa! It's actually on Family Fun's website. I reinforced the covers by gluing them to cardstock insted of just each other. And bound them with jute twine. I would love to have used the baker's twine from Bake It Pretty but I could see alot of procrastination in my future if I waited until I ordered it, you know how it goes-besides, the boys won't care!
