I'd also like to get some projects to get the kids into the Christmas spirit!
This great project idea involves wrapping up 25 books for the family. (tip...reuse them each year or you could really rack up the $$$). Each night pull one package to unwrap and read. I plan to "rig" it so the more involved "chapter books" that would suit my older kiddo will fall on the weekends where there is more time for involved reading. I also like the idea of starting for the 12 days of Christmas (I know...technically they actually start ON Christmas...but as far as the kids are concerned maybe we could do twelve before this once) since I haven't acquired all the books yet. It's either that or wrap a couple "faux books" as placeholders right now until I get to the Scholastic Books Warehouse sale.

I know lots of folks have made Advent calendars to "Countdown to Christmas" too. Check out this great one made by Kelly last year...
