This post of Kids and Toys is great! A fantastic idea and tradition that I started in my own home last year that I feel needs more spotlight around the holidays. Place a sack full of old toys the kids no longer want, out for Santa and he will take them away and recycle them to new kids (after he fixes them up.)
This teaches your kids the gift of giving and helps you by removing some of the toy clutter in the house before bringing in all those new gifts in the morning.
Traditions are important around the holidays and SimplySara has a great post about traditions as well as including several great suggestions. Some of these sound so fun that I want to start them at my house too!
