It is hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone! This time of the year often feels like a blur, but this year it seemed like even more of a whirlwind!

I am starting to look around at our house and all of the Christmas decorations that now look a little ‘clutter-ish’ somehow.  We usually leave our tree up and all of the decorations out until after New Years, but I am thinking I might start packing away some of the smaller items this weekend already.

I never got around to sending out our annual family card, for which I apologize greatly to those who normally receive them :)  We were, however, lucky enough to have received so many beautiful cards this year from family and friends! What I normally do at the end of the holiday season is to file all the cards away in our filing cabinet in a folder called Xmas 20____.  I am not sure when I plan on going through all those cards again.  Maybe when the filing cabinet is too full to add another folder to it?

This year I am thinking I might take a different approach. I have been seeing all these really fun ways of repurposing Christmas cards and turning them into games for the wee ones or preserving them for Christmases to come.

Here are 3 fun Christmas card activities for you and your toddler/preschooler:

  1. Christmas Card Placemats – from the blog: The Creative Mama
  2. Christmas Card Collage – from the blog: From Manager to Mom
  3. Christmas Card Puzzles– from the blog: Chasing Cheerios
I hope you have enjoyed your holidays as much as we have been!

Do you do anything special with your holiday cards after the holidays?
