I just love making special memories with my children. We can buy all kinds of things for our kids and indulge them in every way but it won’t be what matters, for a matter of fact it usually doesn’t help our kids too much. What does matter is what we store in their memory banks. The fun vacations or trips, camping, holidays, family nights, and more. Christmas time is a wonderful time to make those wonderful memories and my kids have admitted hands down its the memories they love most about Christmas. The Christmas music we play, the cookies we make, friends and family, the sharing of our faith and all of the other memories we make at Christmas.
I have recently learned about a new holiday tradition to make a special Christmas Family Tradition and I just love it! It is called the The Christmas Web and it started in 1992 with the Grinkmeyer family. They began putting wands in their kids stockings that has 70 yards of yarn on them. The yarn was wound through the house – around window latches, door knobs, chairs and doors. It then ends in a closet or cabinet that held their special Christmas gift from one of Santa’s elves, an elf who had been looking out for them for the past year and knew of their desire for this special Christmas gift.
Here is a great video showing you in details about this fun activity!
I was really impressed with the set they sent me. The set came in a beautiful box that opens up and inside is three wands(which was great because I have three kids) and a beautiful illustrated book. The wands are strong with lots of string (70 yards to be exact) and the book is an adorable story about the Christmas web. I love that this is not just an activity for the young ones. Teens will love this, even adults. It is hard once the kids start getting older to find things that will impress them and this does just that. I now have a teen and 2 tweens so I would know!
This set could also be used for Easter egg hunts, scavenger hunts, or birthday parties. Even if Santa is not a part of your traditions you could use the web just as mom and dad and the kids would still have a wonderful challenge and lots of fun!
