Create a simple Christmas Wish List with your kids. Give them something they want, something they need, something they wear and something they read.
Several years ago I was introduced to a great method of making Christmas wish lists with the kids that keeps things simple and makes the holidays special. We’ve been using this idea ever since and I love it! We tell our kids they get to make a Christmas list that includes
They also get a big gift from Santa and we buy things for the whole family, like board games and movies. Our kids also buy small gifts for each other and the grandparents always come bearing gifts, but from mom and dad they get 4 things under the tree and we call it good!
I created this simple Christmas wish list that I print off each year and help my kids fill out. Feel free to use it if you’d like!
This list helps me keep everything organized, simple and fair. Plus it adds variety to the presents under the tree- I love it!
These are the gift tags we made if you’d like to use these too!
