    Wanted to pass on this link of a really cute and economical gift for children. You put some small objects into a jar, then fill in the space with colored pasta and then glue the lid on good and tight.

     The child rotates the jar to find all the little hidden treasures. K Williams explains it much better than me. I hope you check out her video. Smile

    Paper plates, napkins, and cups with a tag that says:  Our Christmas wish to you is less dishes for you to do!  I may be doing this for DHs coworkers.  I would like to get a practical gift like that instead of more high calorie treats...
