I LOVE MY NEICE and NEPHEWS! They are the most fun little human beings on the planet! I’m sure you might try to argue with me, but *throat clears* I have the floor 🙂 In order to maintain “favorite aunt status” in the Box household, I’m going to have to kick up my game a bit this year. So….for Christmas gifts, I’ve decided to get ultra-ninja-cool creative: they are getting Magic Fort Box’s.
“What is a magic fort box?”, you ask?
“Ahhhh….you are gonna’ LOVE it!” Have you seen the movie The Holiday? It’s not a “must-see” but there is a fun little scene in there where Jude Law’s kids show off their homemade, magical fort to Cameron Diaz. They all lay under the fun-colored, paper-star-hanging roof and just breathe in the magic. SO, in honor of the amazingness that I find that in that beautiful moment, I’m making my magic fort box.
String (for hanging stars!)
A string of white Christmas lights
A white sheet
Colored markers to color the white sheet
Packages of hot cocoa
A few fun blankets
A new bedtime story book
I think we are going to have a BLAST! Don’t you agree? What creative things have you given the little ones in your life? Any ideas for other moms on a budget, or just trying to get their kids out from beneath a television?
I can’t WAIT for the sticky, hot-cocoa kisses and warm little bodies snug up against me as we tell bedtime stories in the “magic fort”!
