I've been looking for some type of monthly fun activity pack that I could subscribe to for the girls for a while, and I have not been able to find anything that doesn't look junky and doesn't cost way more than it's worth. However, I love the idea of them getting a fun pack in the mail each month, and I know it would thrill them beyond belief. While thinking about this, it suddenly occured to me that I can make my own monthly fun packs for the girls.
I've been thinking about this for months, and I'm very excited about it. I have a shipping box that I'll fill with various things each month...a couple of crafts, stickers, a piece of candy or gum, a recipe, paper dolls, and any fun seasonal activities that I find on the internet. I'll address it to the girls each month and put it on the porch (where our mail lady leaves all of our packages) for them to find during the first week of each month. They'll know it's from me, but I hope that they'll assume that it came in the mail since that will make it a little more exciting. I'm going to introduce the monthly fun packs to the girls on Christmas morning with this set of New Year's Eve hats, horns, and decorations. O was talking about New Year's Eve hats today, so I know she'll be thrilled to see this set!
