I have been following the 100 day Countdown to Christmas and have received some wonderful ideas for preparing for Christmas 2009. Only 40 days left!

Today’s post is about sibling gifts. My children are only 1 and 3 years old so it’s not going to be that much of an issue for a few years but it would be a fabulous tradition to start. A great idea is to “set up Mom’s Store every Christmas with objects she had been collecting throughout the year that she knew would interest her children. …Designate a place in [your] home as Mom’s Store, …set out a number of items appropriate to one child, then …bring in one child at a time to “buy” a gift from that selection for [their] brother or sister. Then [Mom] cleared those items and prepared to do another round.

The Countdown to Christmas Challenge for today is to take some time to consider gifts for siblings. Maybe you want your children to make gifts for each other. Maybe you have a special night when you take each of them shopping alone. Maybe you’d like to try Mom’s Store. Whatever the case, preparation is key. You’ll need to be sure you have the materials you need on hand.
