12 Days of Christmas.

This year our family is doing a 12 Days of Christmas for both Grant and Carson's teachers at school.  The plan was to do it 'anonymously'....we had high hopes of actually going to their houses and ding dong ditching them every night.  BUT...Joe and I were quickly reminded of how our boys are the worlds WORST secret keepers and so....they just bring in their 'surprise' each morning to their classroom before school starts.  They love it!  Here are some ideas if you are doing a '12 Days' yourself.  

Keep in mind:  I am the world's WORST rhymer.So don't laugh.

Movie passes

a 12 pk of of their favorite soda.





Cute subway art and idea copied from Little Birdie Secrets.
Frame from Hobby Lobby

My favorite part of this whole thing:  the bunting I made out of scrapbook paper.  Super simple! I {heart} bunting!!!

  8. Dang it...unfortunately I didn't save the other days and to be honest...I can't remember what they were either! On some of the days, I did different things for the teachers...according to their tastes and likes. I do plan to do this again this year so I will be sure to post ALL of my days and not just some :) :) Thanks for commenting! xoxo

    1. Ya know...I thought I had them all in one post, saved, but I went back to look and I do not. Go to my search bar on the right hand side of my blog and just type in 'Days of Christmas' and a lot of the ideas will pop there! Good luck!! xoxo
