Gosh, I haven't even thought about it yet. Shame on me!! Well at least I know the kids will be making Cinnamon Applesauce and Salt Dough ornaments for their teachers!! That counts as thinking ahead, right?!! (even though I just got the idea about 5 minutes ago)

Excuse my ignorance...but what do you mean by hampers? I keep getting it in my head that you are going to fill a laundry hamper but I don't think that's right is it?

sorry... a hamper is just a basket or tub/tin/box which is filled with a few items then wrapped in cellophane and tied with a ribbon at the top

Oh...okay. Thanks.

Kinda got my ducks in a row (at least in my head), now just have to start getting stuff to make it all up.

Three teen boys will be getting "movie night" baskets, teen girls will be getting some kind of basket, haven't thought that one out yet now that I think about it. any ideas on that would be wonderful! The younger ones will either get some toy or I might just put together an activity and treats basket. Adults will get jams, mixes, bathing salts (for the women), hot/steak sauce (guys), maybe an ornament...I haven't made up my mind on that. Finally, I will have a plethora of homemade candies and other treats, provide containers and they can choose what they want (since they all have different tastes)

Hmmm...busy busy busy...better get busy!!

At least, that's what I'm going for now...my mind is known for Spontaneously changing settled ideas.
