Every year since Izzie was about 2 we have made a Christmas Eve box/hamper.
In previous years the box has been under the tree on Christmas eve morning, but this year our elf Scout will be leaving it as his departure present.
We always put the same sort of things into it – treats and activities the kids can do on Christmas eve, and a few ways to keep them calm and to settle them into bed so they get a good nights sleep before the big day. I have made a video on our box which I will also link at the end.
This year I think it is unlikely that everything will fit into the box we have used in previous years, and so I bought a nice basket from Waitrose. I haven’t got a photo of it all packed together but will add one when I get it all wrapped. So this is what is going to be in our box….
Nearer the time I will also add in some reindeer food, which we will make for the kids to sprinkle on the lawn so Santa can find our house. We also have hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows too.
Do you make a Christmas eve box, and what do you put in yours?
