Each year we practice a way…

Non-Toy Gift Ideas For Kids

Non toy gift ideas for kids

With 3 girls we have acquired a lot of toys. We have a playroom full of toys. I gathered two garage bags full of toys to donate and when I came home and looked into the playroom it seemed as though I didn’t take a thing. That is how many toys my kids have. It got me thinking, how can we still have a wonderful Christmas without the clutter. That is when I  came up with my Non-toy gift ideas for…
