WAY more than they needed. I was seriously considering donating some of the gifts I had bought them to the Open Door Mission or one of the children's homes in town....they got that much...
Their "big" present this year was a kitchenette, which they love, and the grandparents got the girls some really nice fake food items/sets to go along with it. It's pretty sweet. Way cooler than anything I ever had when I was a kid, that's for sure! They also got shopping carts and cash registers. And puzzles, tea sets, coloring books, markers, and crayons. So much STUFF!
One of the least noteworthy things that they received (or so I thought) were these bath tablets, made by Crayola, which were nestled in their stockings on Christmas morning.
Ladies, let me tell you...I bought these at Target...I needed something to stick in the girls stockings and they were like $3....I thought, why not?
Major score! The girls LOVE them! They love getting to choose which color their bath water is at night, and they love playing tea party in the bath with the colored water! Totally worth the $3! It's definitely one of the girls new favorite things! And, it's a great way to kill an hour on a cold morning when we can't go outside and play....take a nice warm bath and play tea party at the same time!
Both of these pictures were taken with the blue tablets (I think the blue is the best!), but the girls like the yellow and the red equally as well.
So there! What I least expected turned out to be a big hit =).
Do you guys have a favorite item that your kiddos got for Christmas? If so, share it here! I'd love to get some more great ideas!
Hope you all are well!
