Holiday Gifts for my Kiddos:)

I am linking up with Stephanie at 3rd Grade Thoughts to share my Christmas gifts for my kiddos this year since I am right smack in the middle of making them;)
  I ALWAYS buy them a book because I work so hard each year trying to instill a love of reading. 
So this year they are getting a book, a pencil, a winter eraser, and a Smencil.  My kids LOVE Smencils.  Our PBS club sold them before Thanksgiving and I bought a class set and put them away for Christmas:)
I popped everything in a white lunch sack (well, I have to hubs helped me out and stuffed all my bags for me.  Do ya think he can see the stressed out look on my face?  LOL!) 
As hubs was stuffing, I was folding a little flap over, poking holes and then used pipe cleaners to tie them shut.  Then I twisted on a candy cane and note:)
I put the gifts on Instagram and got a few requests for the tags ya go:)  Click the pic or HERE to download them from Google docs:)
Now, I am off to finish up their gift.  I have posted about our "Snow Day" in Florida before. Another part of their gift is the snow playdoh.
This pic is from last year because I haven't made it yet.  Will be doing that as soon as I am done with this post:)  The recipe I use for this is HERE.
I also give them Snowman in a Bag snack.  They love this too!  (again, pic from last year as I'll be making that today too!!!)
These are the tags I made to go on their Snowman in a Bag.  You can find a link for this freebie HERE.
There ya have it.  Those are my kiddo gifts for this year.  I hope you got some ideas for this year or next:)  I know I'll be checking out the other gifts at this linky and pinning away for next year.
Have a blessed week everyone:)
