For this 12 Days of Christmas activity…you get to create fun gifts to give a special friend, family member, or neighbor for TWELVE nights leading up to Christmas! (this is a SECRET mission…so, try not to get caught!) Make sure you pick a family who will be in town on the days you select. (we usually look at the calendar and find the first day and then add up the twelve days to end on Christmas Eve so we’re not bothering them on Christmas Day. But, any 12 consecutive days during the month of December would be so fun!) Also, if you live in a warmer climate…make sure your secret family is home so their chocolates don’t melt!
