In spite of getting a 13-week jump-start on Christmas with this series, my shopping just began this week. Not because of procrastination in the usual sense, there’s just not enough Christmas spirit in me to shop before Thanksgiving no matter how hard I try.

So far, I’ve done all my best shopping online–on Black Friday. (FYI- There is no such thing as Cyber Monday sales. Stick to Black Friday online if you really want to save money.)

But I digress.

This week, I’m spending the bulk of my shopping time making my Christmas list. For a lot of parents and grandparents, this is where things go terribly wrong.

Before we get into that, did you take a minute to watch the above video? If not, go ahead–take a look.

What’s wrong with this picture?

The best toy/plaything I ever gave my children were empty tissue boxes we could stack into pyramids and hide small toys in some of them. We could build the pyramid, knock it down and then search for the hidden toys. And if one got stepped on, no big deal. Hours of fun with both parent and child playing together.

I love this idea Katherine. I've used milk cartons wrapped in contact paper, but never the tissue boxes. I love the extra bonus of a toy inside.

Looks like the Therapy Industry will be alive and well and buying Porsches well into the mid-21st century.
